Students Perform at Collaborative Concert in Boston
Belmont Day students were featured in the Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC) concert, Lift Every Voice: Her Song at the Wang Theatre, on Saturday, May 18. The concert was part of a collaboration and workshop, “Social Justice Conversations Through a Musical Lens,” led by Mr. Jason Holmes, one of the conductors from BCC. Mr. Holmes visited Belmont Day School in late April and led the workshop for Ms. Yui Kitamura’s middle school students.
During the concert, students sang the protest songs, “Rise Up,” and “Nina Cried Power” joined by several hundred other singers from Boston Children’s Chorus, and participating workshop schools Winchester High School and Boston Arts Academy, for this powerful performance. Our students also had the privilege of listening to Ms. Melinda Doolittle, the American Idol finalist. We hope to continue this interdisciplinary collaboration with Boston Children’s Chorus in the future.
