The Chord-Ayres performed at the Milan, MN school for the Memorial day service on May 26, 2014. Collin Peterson, US Representative for Minnesota's 7th Congressional District was in attendance and is included in the picture above.
Representative Peterson met with the Chord-Ayres after the performance and stated that he would like to have the group come out to Washington, D.C. to perform sometime. The Chord-Ayres are now in the early stages of planning a trip to Washington, D.C. and there is a possiblility that the group may perform sometime in November 2014, around Veterans Day. This would be a great honor for the group and they are excited to plan a trip of a lifetime.
