Wheelock Students Sing National Anthem at Fenway Park
May 12, 2014
On Tuesday, May 6, five Wheelock College students were invited to sing the National Anthem at the Red Sox v. Cincinnati Reds game as part of the Colleges of the Fenway (COF) Chorus. Wheelock students included: Noah Burnett, Cassandra Clark, Alexa Curtiss, Norma DeFilippo and Carmen Piedad. The Chorus, under the direction of Ray Fahrner, COF Performing Arts, has a mission to inspire and educate through the rehearsal and performance of diverse and appropriate choral works, and to present an educational context for both performers and audience. Open to all members of the COF community, the Chorus strives to provide an opportunity for beginning through advanced singers to improve their musical skills and expand their musical knowledge.
At Wheelock College, classes in the Arts offer students the chance to explore the relationships among art, literature, culture, and history. The program blends scholarship and artistic process. It teaches students to think critically and to express their own creative vision. In the Performing Arts classes, students learn and apply improvisation and acting techniques, and study musical forms from around the world. The resident Wheelock Family Theatre provides opportunities both onstage and backstage.
