Every four years, St. Paul Academy and Summit School is invited to sing at Carnegie Hall – one of the most famous concert halls in the United States. For Upper School students this year, now was their chance. The choir began rehearsals for the big trip in September at the start of the school year. After working extremely hard all through January, it was time to bring 140 singers to New York City.

While in New York, students were able to choose activities to take part in that would let them explore the beautiful city. Activities ranged from shopping in Times Square, to touring Radio City Music Hall. One of the main highlights of the trip was seeing the Broadway musical Hamilton: An American Musical at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway. The photos on this page give you a glimpse into what a day of exploration in the “city of lights” was like.
