Voices in the Laurel sings in New Orleans

Members of Voices in the Laurel Children’s Choir have just returned from the Crescent City Choral Festival in New Orleans.  

The festival featured a 200-voice mass choir, which consisted of Voices in the Laurel and nine other choirs from across the United States. The singers rehearsed two to three hours for four days ending with a gala concert at the historical St. Louis Cathedral. For the concert, each choir performed individually, followed by a stunning performance by the mass choir.

Voices in the Laurel is pleased to announce that the choir has recently received a personal invitation to sing at Carnegie Hall in New York at the end of the upcoming season. The group is also holding its fourth annual Summer Voice Music Camp, which will be held July 29 to Aug. 2, at First Baptist Church in Waynesville. The camp is open to any interested musicians who are entering first through ninth grades.
