Additional Additional Additional Disclaimer: This was all filmed well before more was known and understood about the use of masks in public. Thank you.

Additional Additional Additional Additional Disclaimer: To have even more fun with this project many of us made 2 videos, a fun one and a high quality audio one. The audio for the song features the student performances from the high quality audio recordings...hence why you do not hear any herald or piccolo trumpets on the track ; ).
