Ruling from Michigan school administrator leaves visiting artists upset
The all-star choir visiting from Europe was called "Voices of Heaven" but members were told by a Michigan school district not to sing sacred songs while on campus, leaving the artists bewildered and district parents enraged that the German singers would return home with such an impression of the United States.
The order came recently from Supt. Charles Breiner of the Howell School District in Michigan just as the Eberbach, Germany, choir arrived for its scheduled concert at Howell High School.
In a report in the Livingston County Press, parents said Breiner's administration had ordered the choir to leave out music deemed too religious.
