Parasky began working with the students at the beginning of the fall 2021 semester. "We were selected to perform after only a few rehearsals this fall. I'm very proud of the work these students have put in and where we are headed as an ensemble!" he said.
The ensemble will travel to Chicago for the convention, which runs from August 11–14, and will perform on Friday, August 12 at 10:15 at the Merle Reskin Theatre.
