While our plans to join with the Virginia Children’s Choir in person have been put on hold due to the pandemic, we were thrilled to be asked to join their virtual recording of ‘Phoenix Song’ which premiered on their Facebook and YouTube today. Hopefully we will sing together in the same space very soon.
A virtual performance by VCC’s two older choirs, the Concert Choir & Chamber Singers, and singers from The Southend Boys & Girls Choirs of Southend-on-Sea, Essex in Great Britain.
All audio and video was captured by the singers and instrumentalists in their own homes in March & April 2021. Posted June 2021
