Members of the Cheshire Academy chorus joined hundreds of singers from around the region to participate in “Singing Together For Peace” Saturday at Yale’s Woolsey Hall.
The event was sponsored by the Saecula Choir Foundation and was described as “an uplifting intergenerational festival of gospel and folk music.”
Members of the Cheshire Academy chorus, fresh from performing in their Spring Concert the night before, performed “You Will be Found” from the Broadway show, “Dear Evan Hansen.”
The performance included solos from Jenna Denomme ’19, Mariel Docabo ’18, Daniel Li ’18, Krystal Charter ’20 and Zhaorui Dong ’20. The group was accompanied on piano by student accompanist Xueqing Sun ’18.
“The Singing Together for Peace festival was a great experience for our students, partly because they performed in a choir of 300 people at Yale’s historic Woolsey Hall, and partly because they represented Cheshire Academy’s skill, ability, and sense of community and citizenship in the best possible way,” chorus director Nate Trier said.
