MS Choirs perform original songs in new, virtual format!

Last week, SPA's Middle School choirs performed their final pieces of the year as part of the Middle School Student Showcase.

Rather than individually record 50+ videos and then edit the pieces together, Assistant Middle School Choir Director Tim Kraack '05 wrote two original songs that took technology barriers into consideration and allowed students to sing and perform as a group in a live format. The boys' choir performed a medley of traditional hymns and folks song that incorporated soloists and unique technology sounds. The girls' choir performed a song titled "Here at Home," which was written using text submitted by the students to describe their feelings about life in quarantine.
