WAKE FOREST — A group of 31 students from Heritage Middle School's Patriot Pride Honors Chorus has been selected to sing for the Biltmore Candlelight Tour today (Friday) in Asheville.
They will present five performances between 5:30-10:00 p.m. while guests tour the beautiful Biltmore house.
Patriot Pride was told this summer that they would be on a waiting list to perform for the Candlelight Tour but after submitting an audition tape of their performance, the chorus was immediately invited to perform in this year's Candlelight Tour.
The Patriot Pride Honors Chorus is extracurricular and is comprised of seventh and eighth-graders in all four tracks who rehearse at sessions before school.
Recently the chorus won first place at the North Carolina State Fair Middle School Choral competition.
The Patriot Pride Honors Chorus Director is Elsie Shuler and the accompanist is Kimberly Przybyl.
