From the West Bloomfield Patch
After hearing West Bloomfield High School's Laker Express choir perform the national anthem during a recent tour of the school, Sen. Mike Kowall (R-White Lake) invited the group, under the direction of Sheryl Hauk, to perform in Lansing on Election Day.
“I can't think of a better way to showcase the students of the West Bloomfield School District and of the 15th Senate District than to invite them to the Capitol to perform for the public and lawmakers alike,” Kowall said.
The Laker Express will perform in the Capitol Building Rotunda at 12 p.m. The Rotunda rises 160 feet to an opening at the top of the inner dome. Called the oculus, or eye of the dome, it provides a glimpse into the vastness of the universe, represented by a starry sky.
