  5. I was in a traveling choir at his age (Carillon Choristers). It’s such a wonderful experience to sing and be on stage. And what an honor for Sawyer to have a solo! He did a great job!

  6. Hilary, How fun! I bet you have great memories! Sawyer has loved the boys choir… Meeting other kids that like to sing like he does has been very rewarding! The improvement in his voice and the theory knowledge that he has learned has been amazing too! A great experience all around! Thanks for sharing Hilary! 🙂 So cool!
