The Columbus School for Girls Grace Notes recently traveled to Anaheim, Calif., to participate in the Festival of Gold, a national choral invitational.

The 14 young women were the smallest performance group attending the festival and placed in the top tier of women's groups, singing Class A and AA literature.

Each choral group also attended clinics with guest conductors.

All of the Grace Notes were selected to be in the festival's honor choir.

Based on their scores, the Grace Notes have been invited to participate in the next highest level of choral invitational for 2010.
