Choir Members to Sing at Epcot


Approximately 81 of Perry’s Choir members will travel to Orlando in December to sing as part of Disney’s Candlelight Processional at Epcot.  The Candlelight Processional is an annual re-telling of the Christmas story performed by a celebrity narrator and accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra, Disney’s Voices of Liberty and a mass choir. In addition to an audition early in the school year, students are required to learn 14 songs, attend rehearsals backstage at Epcot and then sing for at least one performance.  Perry has been selected to sing at both the 6:45 and 8:15 concerts on Monday, December 21. Stay tuned for more details–this will be a performance to remember!


New Bel Canto dress

This year’s freshman Bel Canto members will sport new apparel!  After ten years, our dress was discontinued.  A flattering style in a stretchy fabric that will allow students more ease of movement for breathing has been chosen.  It’s also slightly less expensive than our old dresses–just $51 each. Dresses have been ordered and must be paid in full before students will be permitted to take them home.  Checks may be made payable to Perry Vocal Music.  Check out new look below!Bel Canto dress 2015
