A Special Performance at the State House

Today I had the honor of hosting, with Representative Hill, a special group of student vocalists, known as La Petite Chorale, and their families here at the State House. This remarkable group of performers range in age from five to eleven years, and come from the Cape Ann communities.

A particularly impressive aspect of the chorale's performances is the inclusion of multiple languages (including American Sign Language), sophisticated choreography and dancing. These talents are developed and nurtured by the talented Chorus Director and founder Wendy Manninen.

Following a tremendous performance today on the Grand Staircase at the State House, Representative Brad Hill gave the group a tour of the House Chamber and I provided them with a tour of the Senate Chamber. We were honored by the visit from these special guests.
