Chorale and the Meridian 8 jazz group are now eligible to perform in the Champions category of the 2014 World Choir Games in Riga, Latvia.

"We are confident that we offer the premier arts-education opportunities in our region, and we are exceptionally thrilled and honored hat now the world community has recognized our vocal groups. We will proudly and enthusiastically prepare for the next World Choir Games in the Champions category in Latvia. We, again, promise to represent our country well."
The Chorale includes 41 SCPA students in grades 8 through 12. Meridian 8 includes eight vocalists and three instrumentalists in grades 9 through 12.
