On Thursday, May 3rd the PCA 7th & 8th grade Middle and High School Choirs participated in the Carowinds Festival of Music. Accompanied by pianist and parent, Amy Wheeler, the 56 member middle school choir sang two challenging selections, "Pie Jesu" and "Soon I Will Be Done", featuring 8th grade soloist, Anna Scott Nutall. During the performance, three well respected musicians and judges made comments and gave a final rating of SUPERIOR to the Choir. Students celebrated their success with shouts of excitement as all of the months of hard work had paid off!

Likewise, the High School Vocal Ensemble performed two challenging pieces, "Mojuba" and "The Lord Bless You and Keep You." "Mojuba was very special to the students. This song was selected after Bulus, a guest student from Nigera, made a tremendous impact on the PCA choir class. His stories about his life in Nigeria encouraged them to study music from his country. "This was one of our favorite pieces," said Choir Director Kathy Thames. The PCA High School Band lent their musical talents to the performance by playing the African percussion accompaniment. The Vocal Ensemble received an overall rating of EXCELLENT with one Superior rating and additional Superior comments.

It was an amazing experience according to Mrs. Thames, "I am extremely proud of all of our students! They all performed with such excellence and we had a fun and memorable day in the Carowinds Park! Beautiful music, beautiful weather, beautiful doesn't get much better!"

It was a great way to wrap up the season. Our JV Baseball team played an excellent game last Wednesday night and ended the season with a 13-0 win over the Lowcountry Wildcats!!!

Head Coach John Fragola says he's excited about what's ahead for PCA baseball.

"Our boys recently finished a strong baseball campaign winning three out of their last four games and I could not be more proud of their achievements this year.  It was a season of tremendous growth and the future for PCA baseball is very bright.  Our Eagles baseball program is blessed to have had a group of such strong and talented young men who worked hard this year to compete athletically and honor God in all that they were asked to do. A big thank you goes out to my coaching staff, our athletic director, our Booster club, our parents and the entire PCA community for all of their support, hard work and dedication to advancing our program."
