GROTON -- The award-winning Groton-Dunstable Regional High School Chamber Choir has been chosen to perform at Carnegie Hall with renowned composer and conductor Eric Whitacre.
The group will travel to New York in early April for a series of rehearsals prior to the performance on April 8. The trip also includes cultural visits to historic New York landmarks.
The Carnegie Hall performance is the latest honor for this elite high school choir, which is led by Music Director Timothy Savoy. Last year, the group traveled to Italy and Croatia for a series of performances and exchange concerts. They completed a similar singing tour of Italy, Austria, and the Czech Republic in 2014. And, in 2012, the group won the honor of performing at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England.
To raise funds so that every member of the Chamber Choir can travel to New York for the Carnegie Hall performance, the group will host its second annual "Fun-Raiser" on March 25 at Devens Common Center, 31 Andrews Parkway, Devens.
The event begins at 5 p.m., with a silent auction, reception and jazz music to local band, Blue Taxi, followed by performances by the GD Chamber Choir and Jazz Band, and then dancing until 9 p.m. to local rock band, The Old Wild Men.
Tickets are $25 per person, which includes light appetizers. A dinner menu and full cash bar will also be available. Tickets are available online through our website: www.gdchamberchorus.org.
