The City of Pontiac has recently learned that it will serve as host to the group known as An Exceptional Chorus. An Exceptional Chorus provides music, choreography training and performance opportunities for high school age students and adults with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. The ensemble will perform at the Pontiac Public Library on Friday, August 8th at 5:00 PM. Participation in the musical group helps the member gain confidence, a positive self-image, and a sense of responsibility.
An Exceptional Chorus was founded more than 25 years ago by a Special Education teacher at Hamilton High School in Milwaukee, WI. The chorus, typically made up of 25 to 30 artists, has performed at such diverse venues as the White House, Walt Disney World (3 times!), and a historic old opera house in Iowa.
The group will arrive in Pontiac as part of a “musical vacation.” They are traveling and seeing sites along Route 66. They will be visiting Pontiac’s Museums and other attractions before they present their show at the library. The public is invited to enjoy this wonderful chorus. Admission is Free. The Pontiac Public Library is located at 211 East Madison St. For more information, contact Ellie Alexander at (815) 844-5847.
