North Vancouver District School Trustee Kulvir Mann has shared this YouTube collaboration with students from Carson Graham Secondary Choir and Bands.These students were to be in Southern California this spring and had planned to collaborate in a musical workshop with the Orange County School of Arts. Orange County School of Arts in Santa Ana.
Of course after all the fundraising and planning the tour was cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. The two music directors and students decided to work together to create a virtual choir collaboration with Kyle Pedersen’s song written in 2016 “We Sing the Darkness to Light”.
There are 25 students from the Carson Graham Secondary School and 25 participants from the Orange County School of Art in this performance. It’s a beautifully sung work they describe as about “hope, compassion, mercy and unity”.
The choir starts performing at 58 seconds on the video below.
