At Brother Leonard's suggestion, I wanted to let everyone know that this Sunday morning, somewhere between 9 and 10:30AM, Prep's Chamber Orchestra will be on CBS Channel 2, in a piece documenting last night's rehearsal here at Prep for our upcoming performance at the Departure Ceremony for His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI. The Vicariate Choir, the Diocesan Youth and High School Choirs, and students from Xaverian High School were involved as well. You should note that the vast majority of the High School Choir is made up of Prep students.
As this is a formal diplomatic event, our students will have the privilege of performing for countless dignitaries, and suffice to say, they have firmly established their reputation based not only on the quality of their musicianship, but their maturity, professionalism, and sense of community.
Thank you for all the kind comments and support so many of you have shown us over the last few weeks,
Best regards, Rob
