Susan Miller Dorsey High School
Dorsey High School is located in south central Los Angeles and is one of the smallest high schools in LAUSD. Their TruDonion Choir has been a signature for decades at the school. The choir started with nine members and has grown to over 45 talented singers. The choir has a range to perform Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus to Yolanda Adams and Samoan songs to German songs.
After extensive media coverage, the word was getting out that Dorsey High School would have an opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. They received an invitation from Mid-American Productions, along with three other area schools, to perform at an annual series of top school choir concerts. But, they were financially challenged and also needed transportation.
As the deadline was quickly approaching, the Legacy Ladies were able to provide roundtrip airfare for all of the choir members, on their official carrier, Southwest Airlines. As they boarded the plane, there was a look of relief in their eyes of knowing that there dreams had come true and they would experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.
