The Concert Choir and Chorus of Martin Luther School (MLS) in Maspeth will again sing the National Anthem before a New York Mets game at Citi Field this May.
The performance will take place just before the first pitch of the contest between the Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday, May 29.
The Martin Luther School Choirs are under the direction of Katie Luekens Chan Chee, currently in her fifth year at MLS. The group performs in three concerts each year: the Christmas Concert, The Sacred Concert and the Café Concert.
In 2011, the Concert Choir was featured on Fox 5’s Good Day New York as part of their Glee Club segment. They also performed in the Bronx Zoo’s “Sing! For Wildlife” competition, sang “America the Beautiful” at a New York Islanders game and performed the National Anthem before a Mets game in September.
Chan Chee plans to take the Concert Choir to the World Choir Games in Ohio this summer.
Tickets for the Mets game are available by calling MLS at 1-718- 894-4000, Ext. 133, or by sending an e-mail to [email protected].
