From Colin C: (Voice) I was part of the Kentucky Musicians Abroad choir. Performing in these incredible historic and sacred places was amazing. I loved experiencing international travel, visiting amazing places, and seeing famous landmarks. Being in Switzerland and seeing the Matterhorn and the natural beauty of that country was the highlight of the trip.
Other Lafayette students that participated in KMA included:
Choir: Eli B. ('22), Kimberly C, Colin C (SCAPA Voice), Ainsley H, Ruby L, Parker O (SCAPA Voice), Kara P (SCAPA Voice), Katarina S (SCAPA Voice), Aubrey Y (SCAPA Voice). Gabe B (SCAPA Band) also participated in the KMA Band.
We are excited to announce that the Lafayette Madrigal Singers have earned two prestigious invitations this year! Based upon blind audition recordings, the group was selected to present featured performances at the Kentucky Music Educators Association Conference and the American Choral Directors Association Southern Division Conference in February 2024. An invitation to perform for music conferences are one of the highest honors a scholastic ensemble can receive. We are grateful to the Madrigal Singers alumni whose dedication to excellence in choral singing made these incredible opportunities possible.
