Hi, my name is Io Ken and I am so happy to be a part of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Show Choir! As a freshman, it is a huge honor to have been chosen to be a member of such a special group. In our Show Choir family’s 33rd year, we’re traveling to South Africa. We will be performing as well as immersing ourselves in South Africa’s musical cultures. Your financial support will go a long way toward the $4500 that each student needs to raise to make this trip a reality. You can fund an entire trip for one student, or any another amount. We will visit Johannesburg, Soweto, Cape Town and even Robben’s Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. By supporting this trip, you’re also supporting DC Public Schools. I’m so grateful to enlist your support in this opportunity to go to Africa!
