Pacer show choir to perform at Capitol building
Lakeridge High School's show choir Company Ladies caught the attention of lyricist Connie Lim when they performed the song "I Can't Keep Quiet," made famous at the Women's March in Washington, D.C.
The group's video went viral online after Lim posted it on her Facebook page. Now the Lakeridge Ladies, under the direction of Bill Campbell, will present this tune by MILCK at the Opening Ceremony of the Oregon House of Representatives at 10:30 a.m. on June 22. The concert will take place at the Oregon State Capitol, 900 Court St. NE, Salem.
