YVC Choir releases virtual performance of ‘Home’

Yakima Valley College’s Choir program, under the leadership of Music Instructor Steven Slusher, is excited to release a virtual performance of the song “Home,” the debut single from American Idol season 11 winner Phillip Phillips.

“While continuing to be almost entirely online, I’ve had to find innovative ways to keep my program and students making music,” stated Slusher. “Having produced an all-online video last Spring and outside video this past Fall, gaining experience with green screen was the next logical step in their education. Music videos and commercials are a viable career path that has been a blast to explore.”

Through the use of vocal recording studios and green screen video recordings, the YVC Choir’s performance is now available on the college’s website and YouTube channel.

“YVC’s Music Department is always striving to provide musical opportunities for our students. Even during a pandemic, we were able to explore the many career opportunities in the music industry,” Slusher said. “All music instructors have worked hard to continue the excellence and the comfort of ‘home’ that we’ve created here at YVC.”
