Twenty-two members of the Bullis Concert Choir returned victorious from competing at the Young Prague 2012 musical festival over Spring Break. The event draws up to 1000 musical performers from schools throughout the world to the annual event.
Before the competitive portion of the festival, the Bullis singers performed at two public presentations at unique venues in the historic city. In the next phase of the festival, The Bullis singers competed in the gospel and spiritual category. After performing four pieces, the group took home the silver medal—the top prize in this category!
As part of the festival, the Bullis group enjoyed a variety of other activities exploring Prague and getting to know their fellow competitors and performers from around the world.
