On May 26, the 26 members of the GBDS choir of joined about 6,000 other choir students from NJ and NY to take part in the second American Young Voices concert. This huge event was held at the Prudential Center in Newark. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Young Voices (YV) concerts, which were started in England. This is the second year our students took part in this magnificent concert, and this year we had the best seats: front rows, right next to the stairs down to the stage! This great location meant that we got to talk to and take pictures with many of the participants - including the conductor Francisco Nunez. We spent several months working very hard to prepare for this challenging program. The repertoire this year included THREE medleys (one with two songs in Spanish), a song from Mozart's Magic Flute, and many more songs, including an original song written for the concert. Our hard work paid off and we had the BEST time! The parents who came to see the show agreed.

Thank you to the choir students for all of your hard work over the past few months, and for giving up recess to do this.

Thank you to the parents who supported the concert. We are certainly planning on being a part of next year's American YV!
