MEIA Grantee David Milnes and his colleagues at Egg Harbor Township High School in New Jersey felt terrible that the students missed their spring concerts and musical. So they put on a virtual showcase, granting the school choir, band, and strings members the opportunity to perform. They also worked together to record one of the songs, “From Sea to Shining Sea”.
Mr. Milnes mixed the song track by track, and the end product was incredibly well received, garnered press coverage, and was submitted for “best practice” at the NJ superintendent meeting this month.
Watch the students perform their rendition of “From Sea to Shining Sea”:
