The meeting also will command the best and brightest in entertainment. By special invitation, members of the Pensacola Children’s Chorus will be the featured entertainment for the event. Organizers of the Coalition have asked the 42 high school entertainers, known as the Young Singers, to open the two-day event with a patriotic musical celebration. It promises to be a fitting prelude to the introduction of the Congressional Caucus and the Keynote Address by Aneesh Chopra, the nation’s Chief Technology Officer.
Sponsors and speakers attending the pre-convention reception will be treated to a Broadwaystyle spectacular of musical hits, including Rhythm Rhapsody and selections of Andrew Lloyd Weber. Outfitted by award-winning costumer, LaRaye Ryan, with dance routines by celebrated choreographer Michael Dennis, the group will share the pizzazz and magic that has become associated with the Pensacola Children’s Chorus.
Eight members of the elite group are Gulf Breeze residents and look forward to representing the community before the diverse group of national leaders. Jessica Brosofsky, Madison Baer, Alexis Denny, Sydney Royer, Jake Villareal and Anamarie Wright all attend Gulf Breeze High School.
Less Bressler is a Navarre High School student, and Tommy Vassiliades attends the International Baccalaureate Program at Pensacola High School.
The group will tour the U.S. Capitol and the White House during their stay.

The Pensacola Children’s Chorus has produced Broadway leads, movie and television actresses, recording artists and opera stars. During its 21-yearhistory, Gulf Breeze talent has always been a major part of the group.
