In February 2016, 47 Cheltenham Choir students and 5 adults traveled to Puerto Rico for an extraordinary performance tour. Here’s a video from our wonderful time in Puerto Rico.

We were greeted particularly warmly by our singing colleagues at Ponce High School, who performed for us, fed us a homemade dinner at their school, and reached out to all our Cheltenham singers with open arms.

Find out more about Puerto Rico from our Select Choir President, Erin Kuchler.

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, we are reaching out to assist our colleagues in Ponce. Many are still without clothes, water, and food, and the school is spearheading efforts to rebuild its students’ homes.
