CHS/SJA Chorus Members Selected To Perform with Foreigner

Members of the CHS/SJA Schola Cantorum were invited to sing backup for the British-American Rock Band, Foreigner, at a concert at the Baton Rouge River Center on Thursday, May 13.  The concert also included Kansas and Styx. 

Foreigner is a supporter of the íÍSave the Musicíñ program throughout the United States.  While on tour in the U.S., a choir is selected to perform with Foreigner as part of the program.  Each choir receives $1000 for participating and is also competing against all other choirs in the tour for $30,000.  The winning choir will be announced at the end of the tour. 

íÍThe concert was a complete success and the students had the time of their life.  It truly was a high point in their lives and for their director,íñ commented CHS/SJA Chorus Director Stephen Galliano.
