Choral Union, the Advanced SSAA Choir, is working hard preparing for their performance at the California Choral Directors Association State Conference in San Jose on March 13-16. They will be performing on March 14 in the spotlight concert to be held at St. Joseph’s Basilica. They are one of eight choirs chosen from over forty that auditioned from across the state, which included, Middle School, High School, Community College, University and Community Choirs. We are so proud of you, Choral Union!
A big shout out goes to Jesse Eades, Electric Bass player and member of Mustang Chorale, who was named a finalist in the Young Arts Competition, a very prestigious national competition for musicians, actors, dancers and authors. Congrats Jesse!
