Choir gives students opportunity for innovative recording
YVC’s choir program, under the leadership of Music Instructor Steven Slusher, is continuing to provide innovative opportunities for students to perform despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. This spring, the group created 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. Having had to do an outside video this past fall, 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,” stated Slusher.
Through the use of vocal recording studios and green screen video recordings YVC produced a virtual performance which is available on YVC’s YouTube channel.
