Preston and Garrett auditioned for Vanderbilt University's Blair School of Music and were both chosen to join the "Nashville Boychoir". They will practice one afternoon a week starting in the fall. It's a big commitment since concert tours (both locally and internationally) are a regular part of the boychoir program, but they will receive thorough training in vocal technique and performance skills. Plus, they'll get to sing with boychoirs from around the world, perform with the Nashville Symphony, and make new recordings on the Decca label. I let the director know that we plan on taking the boys with us to Russia for a few weeks and she didn't think it would be a problem at all.
Now, I can hardly wait to see them on stage in their little tuxedos!
