Three Paul Cuffee upperclassmen traveled to Rhode Island College to participate in the Young Men’s Choral Festival hosted by the Providence Singers, Rhode Island College, and Bishop Hendricken High School. Sebastian Yidana, Elvis Artigas, and Orlando Montalvo performed songs in Latin (Medieval Gloria), English (The Pasture) and African Zulu (Tshotsholoza). Orlando was also selected to perform a solo part in the song Tshotsholoza. With just one rehearsal, these young men performed in concert with over 80 other gentlemen from around the state that evening.
