Plymouth International Chorus’ USA Debut A Success!

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400
Commemoration

Last night, the Plymouth International Chorus (PIC), a collaborative effort between the United States and United Kingdom to unite students through song as part of the Plymouth 400 Commemoration, performed its first ever concert in the USA! This year’s chorus is comprised of 22 students from the UK and 100 students from the Plymouth Public Schools, who have been rehearsing for months in their respective cities in preparation for this event.
The Plymouth Public Schools Visual and Performing Arts Department sent 35 of our local students to the UK last year to perform in the historic Guildhall in Plymouth (see the vide here!). This year, we were lucky enough to have the PIC here in America’s Hometown!
The project will continue to collaborate on annual musical performances leading up to 2020, with the location of each performance alternating between the US and the UK. The final concert will take place in Plymouth, MA as part of the historic 2020 commemoration.
NECN was there to capture all the action:
The Plymouth, Massachusetts portion of the PIC represents nine of the Town’s public schools and is led by three educators from the Plymouth Public Schools Visual and Performing Arts department; Karen Antonsen-Devoe, Kathy McMinn, and Jessica Fuller. The students were chosen after a competitive audition and application process, and have been rehearsing together on a weekly basis since March.
Plymouth Public Schools represented in the PIC are: Plymouth Community Intermediate School, Plymouth South Middle School, Cold Spring Elementary School, Federal Furnace Elementary School, Hedge Elementary School, Indian Brook Elementary School, Manomet Elementary School, Nathaniel Morton Elementary School, and West Elementary School.
