Pleasure Ridge Park High School at Broadway
On behalf of myself and the Advanced Choir students at Pleasure Ridge Park High School, we want to thank Broadway for allowing us to use the facilities on January 20 - 21. Between Friday evening and Saturday morning, the students rehearsed 8.5 hours on their Choral assessment repertoire, as well as their upcoming performance of Mozart's Requiem which will take place in Broadway's sanctuary, on May 3.
This retreat utilized the help of other JCPS choir directors, as well as Music Education students from Morehead State and the University of Louisville. While not rehearsing, the students enjoyed the use of the Family Life Center and gymnasium. All 70 women slept in the yoga room, hallway, and surrounding classrooms. The 28 men were housed in the Friendship hall divided rooms, which also doubled as sectional rehearsal space.
The highlight of the weekend was their reaction at the first chord sung by all 98 in the chancel. Needless to say, they are very excited about performing at Broadway in May!
Members of the PRP Choir will also be singing in worship at Broadway on Sunday, February 26. Please come to support these high school students and see the results of the great progress they have already made!
