The Mississippi School of the Arts Chorale performed recently at the State Capitol at the invitation of Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann.
Weekly on Tuesdays during the 2023 Legislative Session, a student choir has gathered in the Capitol Rotunda to perform a selection of acapella music. Lawmakers, staff and visitors gathered at the rails at all levels of the building to listen to the music echoing.
“Hearing the voices of the future of Mississippi in our Capitol is a good reminder of why we are all here during Session — to make the state a better place for our young people,” said Hosemann, who plans to make the performances an annual occurrence. “These visits also provided a good opportunity for students to learn about the Capitol and lawmaking process.”
In addition to the MSA Chorale, other choirs that sang in the 2023 Session were from Jim Hill High School in Jackson, Brandon High School, Newton County High School, Madison Central High School, Northwest Rankin High School, Clinton High School, Pearl High School, Vicksburg Warren School District, Mississippi Valley State University and Jackson State University.
