Eaglebrook’s Ad Libs, the Sixth Form a cappella group, had a once-in-their-lifetime opportunity to perform at Fenway Park on April 2, leaving their mark on one of the oldest and most iconic stadiums in the United States. The group sang the national anthem before the Boston Red Sox took on the Baltimore Orioles. See pictures of the event here.
Led by music teacher Mr. Benjamin Demerath, the group had been practicing for this performance for several weeks leading up to the event. The students were excited to showcase their talents on such a grand stage, and their hard work paid off as they delivered a beautiful rendition of the national anthem. Watch the recording here.
When asked for his perspective on the performance, Mr. Demerath said: “The students did a fabulous job at singing in one of the most challenging vocal environments. They did a beautiful job of singing with conviction. We’re so proud of them.” Hugh P. ’23 said, “We did so well, and we had so much fun!” “I think it was a really cool experience,” said Sean C. ’23.
“It was really fun, I loved getting to meet the mascots,” said Naomi B. ’23.
