Council Rock School District is finding ways to help students build musical skills even during the pandemic when they are not holding traditional performances. According to an article in Bucks Local News, Council Rock High School South choir director Corey Axler had recorded and published several virtual choir projects, which the students recorded at home and Axler pieced together, last spring. This school year, Axler reached out to Broadway singer Liz Callaway who agreed to collaborate on a similar “virtual” holiday piece with the students. The result, an acapella version of “Marry Christmas Darling,” was arranged by Axler specifically for the students and Callaway. Each student recorded their parts separately at home, while Axler combined them together. The finished video was sent to Callaway, who then recorded and added her solo part. When in-person classes resumed at the high school, some senior choir members recorded some additional vocals as well for a beautiful finished product! Watch the completed music video here:
