St Gabriel's Remote Singers
The St Gabriel's Virtual Choir is a project run by singing teachers Ms Hendrickx and Mrs Hayles, in which students were invited to submit their different parts for the song 'Somewhere out there' from the film An American Tail. These parts were then edited and mixed, and the video assembled, by Ms Hendrickx, thus giving the appearance of a single, unified performance. The song was chosen for its theme, the affection between people who suddenly find themselves separated by distances (real or metaphorical), which seems so appropriate at the moment.
The Junior Studio Singers under the direction of Mrs Page have remotely recorded 'Electric Dreams', chosen as the words are very appropriate for the current times …
"We'll always be together, however far it seems" and "Because the friendship that you gave, has taught me to be brave".
The audio track has been overlaid with a selection of some art projects undertaken by Junior School pupils working remotely for Mrs Thrower.
