The Walter Payton College Prep High School concert choir showed why it has been invited to China.The concert choir performed Thursday with other school choral groups at Walter Payton College Prep, 1034 N. Wells, in Chicago. The choir has been invited to sing at a choral festival in China in March.

The festival is part of the countdown to the 2008 Olympics.

The trip costs $3,500 per student, so the choir needs help raising money.

You can contact the school if you'd like to help. Call 773.534.0034 or visit www.wpcp.org. The school is working on putting up information on its Web site.
