The young singers are preparing for a formal concert, and performances around the city, including Notre Dame Cathedral. They will return home via England.Former Gov. and Mrs. Scott M. Matheson have agreed to be honorary chairpersons of the Delta A Cappella Finance Committee, seeking to raise statewide the $200,000 needed for the nine-day trip.
