We were delighted to have the NSU Concert Choir perform for us today as they begin another spring tour through Virginia to Washington, D.C. What an honor to have their musicians debut the beautiful Yamaha C7 Conservatory Series concert piano provided to Gloucester and made possible through the Hampton Roads Community Foundation via the E.K. Sloane Piano Fund. From ancient chant to Vivaldi, traditional African American spirituals to Broadway, we are so thankful this ensemble was able to return to GHS and share their musical journey and inspiration with students from GHS, as well as Page and Peasley Middle Schools.
