The choir, comprised of 14 students from the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, auditioned  for the Olympics nearly a year ago. Encore sent the group’s video to LOCOG, the organizing committee responsible for choosing, managing and scheduling the London 2012 Games. When the group was selected to perform, they were beyond thrilled. For the majority of the choir members, this once-in-a-lifetime trip to London will be their first experience on a plane!

With just two months to fundraise, the group held performances and posted videos to YouTube in order to garner financial support from their community and beyond. Together, they were able to raise an astounding $66,000.
