It was the briefest of glimpses on the show Tuesday but looks like CT has a reason to watch NBC’s ’America’s Got Talent.’
New Haven -based 3Penny Chorus and Orchestra made it through the next round and will move on to New York City as part of reality talent show !
“We are euphoric,” said 3penny conductor, composer and arranger Colin Britt, who, with Arianne Abella leads the pick-up, volunteer ensemble.
“This has all been so exciting, we are pinching ourselves,” Britt said Wednesday. “And we never dreamed we would ever get a standing ovation from Howard Stern.”
The good news was also confirmed on its Facebook page with this post Wednesday:
Thank you ALL so much for watching last night! In case you haven’t heard – WE’RE GOING TO RADIO CITY!!! The judges put us straight through without needing to see us perform!! We are so excited and feel so lucky! Please tell your friends about us, as we are now going to need AMERICA’S VOTES in the next round!! Thank you again for all of the support!!
Britt said the live elimination shows begin in August.
