The Achievers Ladies Ensemble of Detroit School of Arts performed at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, April 28th. The Achievers were one of the two featured ensembles selected nationwide by a panel of adjudicators to open the National Choral Festival, sponsored by World Strides Heritage Festival.
The ensemble was conducted by Connie Harton Malabed and accompanied by Joseph Rush. The choir’s performance was so outstanding that they received a roaring standing ovation.
During their stay in New York, the ensemble attended a broadway musical, and visited the 911 Memorial and Empire State Building. It was a once in a lifetime experience that the students will always remember.
