The biggest LAB ( Louis A. Botto) Choir yet had its first meeting on Saturday.  LAB XV, following in the footsteps of LAB VI in 2012, will study and perform music of the Mission period which will be the theme of our spring Bay Area and Bolivia tours.  They will perform on their usual rounds, but also at some of the California missions where we will be.  17 of these students were in LAB XIV, and most have been in one or another prior LAB or Skills/LAB sessions.  Albany High School is strongly represented by present and former students, 5 singers have come from Ragazzi on the Peninsula, and most Bay Area counties are represented.  LAB XV represents a first, having attracted corporate sponsorship from Citizen's Equity First Credit Union which is active in Alameda and Santa Clara counties.
