Tech & Apollo Join Forces for Virtual Choir Performance
The Tech and Apollo High School choirs teamed up to perform a song together, virtually in a new four and a half minute video posted online.
They chose to sing the song 'Beautiful City' written by Steven Schwartz and aar. Mar Huff. The neat thing about the video is, each student recorded their voice part from a different location within the community.
The YouTube video reveals each student on-screen, some singing from the classroom while others are performing from their bedrooms. Even though they're not in the same room with each other, their voices are completely in synch with the group.
According to the St. Cloud Area School District 742's YouTube channel it was their 'Spring 2021 Apollo/Tech virtual choir project,' that was 'made possible in part by a grant from the District 742 Local Education and Activities Foundation, LEAF.'
And, well, you're just going to have to watch the video to see how cool it is.
Tech and Apollo's choir performance comes on the heels of a recent viral video by past and present students from College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University.
In the viral video the CSB/SJU community recorded a tribute song for Dr. Axel Theimer who announced his retirement after 52 years directing choral activities for the college and university.
Students joined in on Dr. Theimer's tribute from across the country to sing his favorite song, 'I have had Singing' by Ron Jeffers. In fact, they were able to feature students from every single decade that Dr. Theimer taught at CSB/SJU.
It's obvious that this took a lot of planning and work to coordinate so many people together to perfectly sing the song. It's enough to give you goosebumps! Check it out below.
