The SCHS Choral Department is designed to offer a variety of vocal performing opportunities for our students throughout the year which allows them to enjoy creating music as well as being musically, emotionally, and intellectually challenged. All choirs focus on students’ music reading skills and singing technique primarily through group singing. Team building and developing relationships within each choir and the department throughout is an important aspect to our artistic medium. In addition to developing their musical strengths, students foster self-discipline, cooperation, and commitment as they are Building BONDS, Developing INTEGRITY, and Demonstrating EXCELLENCE through MUSIC!

During the 4th 9 weeks, the SCHS Choir students were taught this song in chunks using teaching videos each week and demo tracks that Mr. Horton and I created. These are the students who learned the song and submitted their videos in a timely manner. I'm very proud of them. We couldn't have a real performance, and most of these students didn't really need to turn anything in because their grades were so great for the 9 weeks. They did it because they believe in the message of the song and for the love of music. They were working on this song throughout April, during the height of the COVID-19 scare, when we all banded together and social distanced as a united cause. Remember that context as you listen. Powerful words!
I need to give a great amount of credit to Mr. Horton who edited everything (audio and video). This song was extra tricky for this setting because the accompaniment doesn't provide a clear beat at the beginning so it took a lot of work to line up everyone's singing. Mr. Horton (having never done anything like this before) took the challenge head on. Great job Mr. Horton!
