High school chorus members visit Rotary Club
Special to the Citizen
This past summer, members of the Morgan County High School chorus visited Austria to participate in the 33rd Annual Classical Music Festival. The festival was held from July 30 through August 16. MCHS students were among many other vocalists from around the world. The students also visited several historic destinations, including St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna and the Statue of Liberty in Budapest, among others.
Chorus director Steve DeLaigle commented on the students, “This is the most professional crowd I have ever traveled with.”
When asked about their favorite moments during the trip, the students replied that they enjoyed everything from touring the countryside and taking in the scenery to unifying with other choir members to “tell a story” through the music.
The most notable performance of the Festival was that of Haydn’s Mass, which featured the 80-member choir and a 90-member orchestra.
