The GCHS Select Chorale has been invited to perform for Pope Francis at the Vatican in Rome, from Jan. 1-8, 2016. The choir’s seven-day tour will feature four performances – two at the Vatican, one at the Church of San Lorenzo, and one in Assisi.

The district’s music booster club, MPAPA, has been soliciting donations via PayPal to help fund the $140,000 trip, and the fundraising efforts are well underway. Any and all help would be appreciated to support our students!

In other exciting news, the Select Chorale had the opportunity to perform at the Mets game on June 10, where they met Paula Abdul.
