This truly has to be heard to be believed:
I dunno. I’ve heard worse choirs–I’ve directed worse choirs–but they are truly bad in that Platonic-ideal-of-badness sort of way. The director gets my vote for “worst at selecting music,” though.
This was the opening video for our Student Fall Retreat called “You’ve Got Talent.” Everyone is asking what inspired this. Here is goes… 1) We needed a great opening video that caught everyone off guard, and set the the tone for the weekend. 2) With this idea in mind, we thought we could use this video as a great object lesson about media choices (kinda creepy hearing your grandparents sing some of this), and 3) this has been a GREAT transgenerational culture experiment. It has totally bridged a gap with our Senior adults and our students. Hope you enjoy!
Four. Years. Old.
Meaning the whole choir is probably dead.
Why Bill O’Reilly doesn’t go after this “music” video to stigmatize our cultural decadence beats me.
This choir director made a really poor choice of music for this group. I am unsure though of how much singing that they could actually pull off with any success of being on tune at all. Our church had a smaller choir and usually sounded great as long as they stayed with music that fit their abilities. You do not have to have great numbers in a choir for success and age is not always a factor: Robert Merrill had a great voice even when he was much older.
