Choral students at Mt. Juliet High School were invited to take part in “Voices on Broadway” in New York this March. The program offers them a chance to practice and perform with a Broadway cast at Disney’s acclaimed New Amsterdam Theatre. They will receive hands on training from top professionals while getting a look backstage.The production being performed with the “Voices on Broadway” program this year will be the Disney classic, “Mary Poppins”. The show at New Amsterdam Theatre has gotten rave reviews.
They have never had an opportunity on this scale before. Vocal Ensemble member Steven Griffin said about the trip, “I am so excited to have the opportunity to go. I get to see the backstage of a Broadway show, and I get to do it with my best friends. I couldn’t ask for more.”
Choral students who are planning on attending the trip will be raising funds for it all year by selling Kroger gift cards, working with local businesses, and the holiday greenery sale coming up this winter. If you are interested in any of these fundraising products, please contact the school’s guidance department, or contact Sandy Elliot at (615)758-5606.
