Hallelujah! Quelling quarantine woes with an upstate Super Choir

Music to Uplift Your Mood!

Hudson Falls High School Choir Director Diane Havern and Queensbury High School Choir Director Matt Gaulin shared a dream of one day combining their choirs for a project.  Once the coronavirus quarantining began, the healing power of music and a spark of innovation made the dream a reality.

While choir students were forced to stay away from the school building this semester and were mostly isolated from their peers, their teachers found a way to gather the singers together in the digital realm.

The resulting rendition of a Leonard Cohen classic not only cheers the students up, but thousands of viewers as well.
