The boys were joined by the 5th and 6th grade girls chorus (Guild) from the National Cathedral School.
The boys and girls sang a total of five concerts, including St. Catherine's school in Richmond, St. Joseph's Villa in Richmond (in the photo at left), and in Williamsburg at the Chambrel Senior Living Complex, outdoors in Merchant Square and at Bruton Parish as the choir for a Sunday church service.
I chaperoned on the trip (hence so many photos) and thought it was a fantastic experience, both for me and the kids. All of the singing events were great, but outdoors at Merchant Square was especially memorable. A high school singing group from New Jersey happened to be touring Williamsburg and they listened enthusiastically to the young kids and clapped along to some songs, then gave a totally impromptu concert in return. Seeing kids from different schools and ages joined instantly by the bond of music was amazing.
In addition to singing the kids had a (very short) guided tour of Williamsburg Saturday morning, then Saturday evening listened to ghost stories and wrapped up as audience/participants in a staged witch trial that was extremely well done.
