BFR heritage breakfast and BFR speaks.

Over the last several years, the world-renowned Leo High School choir has become one of the Chicago area’s most popular and in-demand musical acts. Under the expert direction of Mrs. LaDonna Hill, the 20-member choir has delighted audiences throughout Chicagoland with its entertaining blend of R&B, gospel, hip-hop, pop, patriotic … it’s almost a matter of “you request it and the Leo Choir will perform it.” Leo is proud to point to the Choir as the school’s most visible and valuable ambassadors.
 A performance for the Democratic National Convention’s Host Committee was one of this year’s highlights, along with an appearance at the Black Excellence graduation ceremony at the University of Illinois-Chicago.
 All told, the Choir staged more than two dozen performances outside of Leo High School this year, not to mention the annual spring and Christmas concerts that draw energized, capacity crowds to the Leo Auditorium.
 Performance venues in recent years have included Soldier Field for a Chicago Bears-New York Giants football game; Holy Name Cathedral for the Catholic Lawyers Guild installation mass, and the Dirksen Federal Building for the swearing-in ceremony of a federal judge.
 “We are proud and honored to have Mrs. Hill and the Choir representing Leo High School,” says Dr. Shaka Rawls, Leo High School’s principal. “The effort and commitment they put into each performance is inspiring, and their talent speaks for itself.
 Leo High School is an all-boys, all-minority Catholic school that has been offering a quality, values-based education to young men since 1926. As our 100-year anniversary approaches, Leo is proud to remain a beacon of hope and an educational pillar for Chicago’s South Side communities.
