Citrus Singers Visit Shuren School
The Citrus Singers visited Shuren School for Children of Migrant Workers as part of PPP's American Cultural Center Tours (ACCT) program. The Singers arrived at Beijing Shuren Primary School in the light rain of early morning on July 10th, 2016. The day proved unforgettable for both the American college singers and the Shuren students.
After their performance, The Citrus Singers joined the children for a music class. Choir leader Douglas taught the children how to sing the Broadway classic "What I Did for Love" from "A Chorus Line." The sweet voices of the children blended with the beautiful chorus voices. The children also performed dances they've been rehearsing for The Citrus Singers.
We all enjoyed lunch together, and bonded over the universal joys of the selfie. Ping Pong looks forward to continuous collaboration with Shuren Primary School to bringing more arts programs to the students and continuing to share the joy of arts together!
About The Citrus Singers
The Citrus Singers were founded in 1968. They are a professional performing group at Citrus College in California, USA.

The Citrus Singers training develops student skills in various fields of music and performance. Many students graduate to become music professors, conductors, and professional singers on Broadway, Las Vegas, Disney and Universal Studios.
This trip brought The Citrus Singers on tour in Asia and the U.S. with the help of KMP Artists. Collaborating with Ping Pong Productions, they brought their talents to the students of Shuren Primary School.
