GIRLS CHORUS PERFORMS AT WARRIORS HALFTIME

 A long-awaited dream was realized when 33 singers from the Marin Girls Chorus sang the national anthem at Chase Center on March 13. Led by Artistic Director Cole Thomason-Redus, the singers bravely performed for a crowd of over 17,000 people before the Golden State Warriors faced off against the Phoenix Suns.

   Originally accepted for the 2020 season, the performance was repeatedly pushed back due to pandemic-related delays. 

   “Some of the singers at this game had been waiting to perform at the Warriors for four years — and I can say it was absolutely worth every second,” said Cassidy McCaw, 17. 

   Now in her senior year of high school, she was among the original group slated to sing in 2020. 

   “Singing the anthem was everything I had dreamed about and more,” McCaw said.

   To prepare, the singers were required to audition within the chorus, attend a day-long workshop and rehearse. The girls received resounding applause from the crowd, and many were recognized and congratulated by spectators during the game. For more information, visit marinchorus.org.
