DALLAS, March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bishop Lynch High School's award-winning A Cappella Choir has been invited to sing in churches and basilicas all over Barcelona, Spain, March 7-14 as part of the "Sacred Music in Sacred Spaces" initiative. The Archdiocese of Barcelona personally extended the invitation to the Bishop Lynch choir after a Spanish priest assisting with the papal convocation in Rome heard the choir singing.
More than 50 student choir members plus school chaperones will depart from DFW Airport Thursday, March 7 for their spring performance/pilgrimage.
BL Director of Choir Kathy Leos is particularly proud of her vocal ensemble.
"Our Bishop Lynch choristers have dedicated themselves to an intense practice schedule in anticipation of our Barcelona trip. It will be a joy to hear their voices in concert in some of the most beautiful churches in the world," Leos said.
BL's A Cappella Choir has traveled extensively on the international level having sung in Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, and also in several U.S. cities.
The A Cappella Choir sold about 4,600 poinsettias during the choir's annual fall fundraiser to help offset travel expenses.
