After sending in a videotaped audition in the middle of September, the Franklin High School choir known as the B-Naturals was selected to travel to Disney World in Florida to perform in the annual Candlelight Processional at Epcot.
“When school started in August, we began working on two pieces of music needed for the audition,” explained Robert Jessup, director of Choral Activities at FHS. “One was a piece of my choosing and the other was a version of 'Joy To The World' that we would be performing, if accepted into the processional. Once we sent in our audition, we just had to sit and wait. We received an email in September saying that we had been accepted for two performances on Dec. 7. Disney also sent us an email with the 15 pieces of music that needed to be learned as well as important dress code guidelines and information about the processional.”
