The T. C. Williams High School Choir has been selected as one of three high school choirs coming together to perform at the dedication of the Smithsonian’s newest museum – the National Museum of African American History and Culture – on Saturday morning, Sept. 24. The T. C. Williams Choir is under the direction of Theodore Thorpe III.

Choir students from T.C. Williams High School (Alexandria, VA), Suitland High School (Suitland, MD) and Walter Johnson High school (Bethesda, MD) will be singing the National Anthem that day, in addition to a song that Director Thorpe says will be “inspiring and showcasing the tremendous talents of these students.” Dr. Joyce Garrett will be the director of the 200-person choir and will be joined by Thorpe, Patrick Lundy, Ken Boucher and Kelly Bulter.

“The T. C. Williams Choir Boosters is proud that our students were selected for this honor,” said Becky Santana, President of the T. C. Williams Choir Boosters. “We encourage everyone to come out to this amazing event and learn more about our award-winning Titans!” 

The NMAAHC Dedication Ceremony begins at 9 a.m. on the grounds of the Washington Monument. The ceremony will be televised and also live-streamed at nmaahc.si.edu.
