Calif. h.s. choir sings with social distancing

-

A choral performance with the assistance of technology is spreading inspiration like a virus across the globe even as the coronavirus spreads illness and disease.

The choral festival in the Chino Valley Unified School District in California was scheduled for March 18 and 19 but cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. But the Chino Hills High School Chamber Singers produced a mosaic a cappella video of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” anyway, using technology to combine their individual tracks.

Huskies’ choirs are under the direction of Laura Rutherford and have final concerts at the school, tentatively scheduled this year for Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 and 14, assuming school resumes by that date and other factors. The groups plan to “travel around the world with music in different languages and musical styles.”

Not even coronavirus, also from around the world, can stop this group from bringing music into the world. “And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true,” they sing.
