Boston – Following their recent success in state competitions and on WGBH TV’s “Sing That Thing!”, Waltham High School’s show choir regaled the Massachusetts State Senate recently at the opening of a formal senate session. “Music Unlimited” consists of 43 very accomplished young men and women who are students at the city’s public high school.
The group witnessed the swearing-in ceremony of newly elected Senator Nick Collins (D-Boston) before performing two musical numbers — “Man in the Mirror” and the gospel piece, “Don’t Feel No Ways Tired.” The choir was led by music teacher and former member Alyssa Cincotta.
“Colleagues are buttonholing me to tell me what fantastic talents these young people are” said Senator Barrett. ‘Music Unlimited’ did a fantastic job entertaining the Senate and representing Waltham.”
Douglas A. Trudeau, Director of Fine and Performing Arts at Waltham Public Schools said, “We were truly excited to perform for the Senate. Seeing the swearing-in ceremony was a special treat for all of us. Our song choice of ‘Man in the Mirror’ exemplifies what all Senators should do to make the Commonwealth a better place.”
