Local choir gets star treatment from ‘Pitch Perfect's’ Jakle
Last Updated by
Choir students at Great Falls Central Catholic High School received the star treatment Thursday morning when actress and singer Kelley Jakle returned to the school to offer her expertise.
Jakle and soccer star Abby Wambach participated in the Get Fit Great Falls Come Out and Play event in September. During that trip, Jakle also sang at a Central Catholic girls volleyball game and offered advice to the Great Falls High Choir.
“I’m excited to be here in another capacity,” she said after completing her first of two morning “clinics” with the Central Catholic Choir.
Jakle, who is best known for her role as Jessica in the “Pitch Perfect” films about college acapella groups, helped the students prepare for an upcoming television appearance. The group will join other Montana choirs in Bozeman in January to shoot “Celebrate America with Tim Janis” for Montana PBS.
The program is scheduled to air in March.
