High Schoolers Perform Cancelled Concert Remotely
High schoolers at Chino Valley High School in Chino Valley, AZ sang 'Over the Rainbow' together online after their concert was cancelled from the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Chino Valley Unified School District posted the video on YouTube on March 17th to show the resilience these high school students have. This is what the school district wrote in the description of the video:
School closures throughout the nation have halted highly-anticipated campus events and activities with hundreds of thousands of students practicing social distancing at home. While the annual Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) Choral Festival—originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 18—has been cancelled, our Chino Hills HS Chamber Singers demonstrated resilience by recording their individual a cappella portion of Over the Rainbow in their separate homes, and through technology were able to appear together as a family again. Their harmonious performance was shared online for the CVUSD community with the goal of spreading hope and cheer during this difficult time.
This is an incredible job by Chino Hills High School Chamber Singers singing 'Over the Rainbow' in perfect fashion! Before you watch, maybe grab some extra tissues. We know you have some.
Sorry for making you use extra toilet paper to wipe up your tears. Nice job Chino Hills HS Chamber Singers on a great performance!
