This weekend, the sounds of the choir will fill an iconic stage.

Students from Uniting Voices Chicago are traveling to Washington, D.C., to perform at the Kennedy Center. The nonprofit unites kids and teens across the city to empower and celebrate their voices.

On Tuesday, they rehearsed at First Unitarian Church, at 5650 S. Woodlawn Ave. in Hyde Park, for their Kennedy Center performance.

"Singing makes me happy because I can really like express myself, and I get to learn all these new languages from these different cultures, and it's just really fun," said Margaret Cafarelli, a student with the Beverly Neighborhood Choir.
