The UNC Asheville Singers, directed by Assistant Professor Melodie Galloway, made their sixth holiday trip to the White House this year.
As in previous years, the ensemble also made a stop at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to meet with and sing for the "wounded warriors." Additionally this year, they met with and sang for Senator Kay Hagan and her staff.
And while for previous five years, the Singers had performed in the White House atrium for VIP tours as part of the Holiday Open House, this time they were invited to sing at a reception for dignitaries and special guests in the Diplomatic Reception Room, hosted by the President and First Lady.
