The Incarnate Word High School Madrigal choir is back from caroling at the White House for the third time and report that it was the experience of a lifetime. This year the girls performed in the Grand Foyer of the White House for visitors and White House staff.
Each year hundreds of children’s choirs, high school and college choirs, professional singers and professional instrumentalists are invited to submit their CD’s for consideration. It is an honor for the Madrigals to be among the choirs that are given yearly invitations to perform as well as those that are chosen each year. The Madrigals first visit to the White House was in 2002. They were invited to return in 2003.
“It was an exciting time for all of us. It was a privilege and a pleasure to be invited back for the third time. It is an experience the girls will cherish the rest of their lives,” said IWHS choir director Mary Ann de la Garza.
