“Once everyone was getting lined up, it finally set in what we were doing,” Caitlin said. “It was a moment of joy and happiness. It was such a great feeling to be able to be there with everyone and perform in such an amazing space.”

For Burgess, it was a thrill to see her students sing with professionals beside a professional orchestra.

“It opened their eyes to what they were capable of doing if they worked at it,” she said. “They worked hard and I am very proud of them. It is an experience they will never forget.”
