The GMHS Bands and IB Music students are excited to announce the premiere of their YouTube channel, Music from the Heart. The new channel is dedicated to music performances saluting heroes of the pandemic.
Student performances will include original compositions, solo and virtual group performances, and a series of dedications as seen through students' eyes. The project includes student teams of collaborators focusing on everything from public relations to production to technology.
Students are from the wind ensemble, symphonic band, guitar, and IB music classes. Videos will be distributed regularly throughout the 4th quarter to salute the COVID-19 workers who are inspiring following the stay at home protocols and who continually sacrifice to keep people safe at home every day.
The first video above is a dedication featuring students Nina Rifkin, Jonathan Fritsch, Jacob Philadelphia, Gwen Curtis, Hannah Rossi, Elisabeth Snyder, Anna Dickson, and Hana Saldate. The music is performed by SaGia Singh, IB Music pianist, playing The River Flows In You by Yiruma. The Music from the Heart logo was created by Maia Vollen and video production by Nina Rifkin.
