Palatine High School Concert Choir

Palatine High School Pirate

Palatine High School Pirate

Our guests are the members of the Palatine High School Concert Choir, directed by Steven Sisak, who last year performed at the White House as part of their holiday celebrations. They were invited back again this year but instead decided to spend some time here in our Levin performance studio, where they’ll perform a program of music for our own holiday celebration. The ensemble has travelled around the world, including to London two year ago and in a few days they’ll cruise to the Bahamas for tour.
