Barrington students share their voices at concert

Ten Barrington students participate in special event


A group of Barrington students who sing with the Rhode Island Children's Chorus recently participated in a special concert at St. Andrew's Church in Wellesley, Mass. 

Barrington's Cecily Rea, Jane Frieman, Julia Medizza, Gabrielle Ellicott, Alex Bellanti Diehl, Audrey McCarthy, Yevin Chung, Sudiksha Mallick, Samyukta Mallick and Ciera O'Brien performed first with the Rhode Island Children's Chorus and then joined together with the Boston City Singers and the award-winning Cape Town Youth Choir from South Africa.

The combined group sang a number of South African songs; the Boston and Rhode Island groups had learned the songs during a workshop earlier that day.
