Synopsis

A retired DC high school music teacher, celebrated for changing her students’ lives, tracks down hundreds of former protégés to sing together once more.
--
It was 1988 in Ronald Reagan’s America and Marion Barry’s Washington DC, when an ensemble of Black public high school singers raised $160,000 to travel halfway across the world to a chorus competition in Vienna, Austria. The Eastern High School Choir returned home triumphant—with a Silver trophy and invitations to perform with musical icons, on national television, and at the White House for years to come. Where are they now?
