Three Monroe teens sing in Scotland
Photo supplied Sisters Emily and Lilly Eliasson await the bus to begin their journey toward Scotland and the Aberdeen International Youth Festival full of musicians and performers. Emily, 15, and Lilly, 14, attended the event as part of the all-girls Madison Youth Choir.
MONROE - When three Monroe natives landed in Scotland at the end of July, they embarked on a new journey of learning while accompanying their fellow Madison Youth Choir members during the Aberdeen International Youth Festival. Recent Monroe High School graduate Ellie Erb was one of 68 in the choir to take part in the festival and engage with other performers who were visiting from throughout the world. "I really liked being with people from the other countries and learning about their culture in a more subtle way," Erb said.
