An Illinois high school choir had quite an opportunity this weekend.

More than 80 students from Libertyville High School sang four songs during Sunday mass at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.

The group is traveling with a tour group from Michigan, which helped to schedule the appearance.

Choir members are given the chance every two years to go on a trip at their own expense.

The choir also will perform hour-long concerts near Florence and Venice in Italy.
