Downers Grove South High School choir sings Mozart in Austria
DOWNERS GROVE – Singing Mozart in the cathedral he composed it to be performed in turns the structure itself into a sort of giant, resonating instrument.
"When you sang, your sound literally went like a pinball machine off every surface, and it came back and hit you," Downers Grove South choir singer Caitlin Carlson said. "It was our last song, and a lot of people started crying, as well as the choir members because we worked so hard, and that was the moment when it paid off."
Caitlin Carlson and about 30 other members of the South High School choir performed in the marbled interior of the Salzburg Cathedral in Austria this June at the Mozart International Choral Festival. The choir was invited by one of the festival's guest conductors to sing a piece Mozart wrote for the building, along with some American spirituals and other music.
