On Thursday, November 19th, the Joliet Catholic Academy Tapestry Choir, led by director Joyce Kelstrom went out into the community and performed at Willow Falls and Senior Star, two senior living communities. Tapestry, along with Bells, and Vocal Ensemble are all currently in preparation for the annual JCA Christmas Concert, which takes place Wednesday, December 9th. JCA students in the music department will perform twice, once in the morning at 9:00 a.m. for their fellow students, and again at 7:00 p.m. for parents and the general public.
After performing at Willow Falls and Senior Star, JCA students went to lunch at Portillos accompanied by Mrs. Kelstrom and Mrs. Mary Ann Worst.
