Since opening in 1928, the historic Fox Theatre has hosted immense talents and countless unforgettable performances. Because of its rich history, the theater is cherished by many in the performing arts. This holiday season, high school, middle school and elementary choirs, as well as church choirs from throughout metro Detroit, were invited to be part of that history by performing on the steps of the grand lobby.
Members of the Bishop Foley Catholic High School choir stood beaming atop the Fox Theatre’s shimmering Grand Staircase, where they sang holiday carols — one of 13 area high school choir groups invited to perform.
The annual choir program began in 2004 to give high school students a chance to showcase their talents while having an unforgettable experience.
“What a magnificent space this is,” said Matthew J. Daniels, director of music for Bishop Foley Catholic High School. “For the kids to have the experience to sing in this space — there’s nothing like it. You don’t get performance opportunities like that very often.”
