The Kennedy Colts Honor Choir performed on Feb. 21 and 22 at the 13th annual “Night of the Stars” benefit held at the Paramount Theatre.
This is the first year Kennedy performed in the program. Most of the the performers were students from Apollo and Tech high schools.
The choir’s director is Kristen Mattick.
“Kennedy students had a blast performing in front of approximately 600 people on both nights (to) nearly sold out audiences,” Mattick said.
The variety show benefit was first held in 2002 by the St. Cloud School District’s Local Education and Activities Foundation to save junior-high-school activities. Money raised benefits the student-activities program.
