You can be a part of a exciting international adventure!
Help local high school students with their passage to the Land of Song: our talented youngsters at Valley View High School have been invited to tour Wales!
In October of 2015, the Valley View High School Choir was asked to perform with an internationally known choir from Wales. Côr Dathlu Cwmtawe, (The Swansea Valley Celebration Choir), came here, a place of historical significance to Wales and America, to sing and honor those who had come before. Our talented youngsters had earned a reputation of excellence and professionalism that had brought pride and recognition to our Lackawanna Valley!
Your young artists exceeded expectations!
Now, The Côr Dathlu Cwmtawe Male Choir and Her Majesty’s Representative to the County of Powys (in the heart of the Swansea Valleys) have officially requested that our talented singers come to Wales to represent our valley in combined events with Côr Dathlu Cwmtawe and their Regional High School, Ysgol Bro Dynefwr in June of 2017!
You can assist your young ambassadors!
Become a personal or business sponsor or just share this opportunity to become a positive participant in a young person’s life. For many of these young folks, this will be the adventure of a lifetime. Find your way to help these hardworking students.
A choral legacy...
From its founding, the immigrants to the Lackawanna Valley have created a choral legacy of unsurpassed artistic standards that has reached far beyond our region. A choir composed of Lackawanna Valley singers surpassed the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at the 1893 World’s Fair choir competition. In the same contest, another Lackawanna choir came in third. This is just one event from our rich heritage.
Our young people are continuing that heritage and certainly deserve our help to make possible this International Odyssey of Friendship and Song!
We are excited that these young people are bringing together two nations, two generations, and our valley communities through friendship and song.

We want to thank our generous donors for their continued support of our trip!
