CJ's concert choir earned excellent scores at the 20th annual Archdiocesan Choral Festival held March 24. More than ten choirs with members ranging in grades two through twelve, participated. CJ's choir sang two popular selections from their previous concerts; Dona Nobis Pacem, which translates into Grant Us Peace, and Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee, a gospel interpretation of Beethoven's Hymn to Joy. The student choirs were judged by two important adjudicators, and CJ's choir received ratings of excellent and superior—the highest score available.
"This was an amazing opportunity for a growing program," said Debi Schutt, the conductor of the concert choir, "We were able to show that CJ's performing arts are truly something to watch!"
