The class of 2011 delivered a joyous and rousing rendition of "Chantez Alleluia," a French choir number with interactive harmony, to capture top honors at the annual St. Francis School Christian Music Festival on Friday, April 15.
Students from all grade levels as well as faculty, led by head of school Sister Joan of Arc Souza, crowded into the Almeida Student Center to hear a variety of creative performances. Younger members of the audience sat on the bare floor.
While the seniors took a route through Western Europe to earn their prize, the junior class decided to go through Southern Africa. The class of 2012, which will be the last all-female graduating class from St. Francis School, took second place with a dynamic performance of the Zambian folk song, "Bonse Alba." The voices were accompanied by African drums.
