Staff, volunteers, and clients were in for a special treat on Thursday as they were treated to the sweet-sounding melodies of the ELITE choir.

The performance is one of many stops the Peoria Park District’s ELITE holiday choir made. The choir is made up of students from seven area schools and has been spreading holiday spirit for 15 years.

The energetic choir danced, clapped, swayed, and at times flipped for an attentive audience. The middle and high singers wants everyone to know they were here to inspire hope for the community during one of the often toughest times of the year. Check out some images below from the event.
