It’s a great pleasure for the Y’s Women to welcome the Orphenians Choral Group of Staples High School, directed by Luke Rosenberg and with Tom Scavone, Pre-K through 12 Music and Visual Arts Coordinator, on November 11. The Orphenians are an elite group of 40 high school voices in grades 9-12 who have been invited to perform around the world. Luke Rosenberg, Choral Director, has been with Staples High School since 2012 and has taken the chorus to the Opera House in Sydney, Australia, Yankee Stadium, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, and many other venues. We look forward to enjoying their world-class entertainment at our November 11th meeting.
