Trinity Youth Chorus Performs at 9/11 Memorial Dinner
“They got to meet the mayor, Josh, and Stephen Colbert,” said Melissa Attebury, Coordinator of Music Education for Trinity Wall Street. “They were star struck. They are still talking about it.”
The dinner, held at Cipriani Wall Street, honored donors to the memorial. More than 4.5 million people have visited the memorial, which opened a year ago today. 28 members of the choir, from ages 7-18, sang “You Raise Me Up” with Groban.
"The girls had a terrific time and were still infused with energy past midnight," said John Dimen, whose three daughters are in the choir.
The Trinity Youth Chorus includes children from all five boroughs. The choir has recently finished a week of choir camp in Camp May, NJ. “It was a great way to start off the year,” said Attebury.
