Eight Decades of Music
Faced with the prospect of cancelling the TEA Spring Concert, an idea was hatched that would let the show go on almost as planned.
Music is an occasion for us all to come together, but with the need for physical distancing, musicians and fans have had to adapt, learning new techniques and technologies to collaborate and share virtually. Faced with the prospect of cancelling the TEA Spring Concert, an idea was hatched that would let the show go on almost as planned.
Following along with a guide video from music teacher Stan Charles, each student (with some help from parents!) recorded a video of themselves playing their part alone in their bedroom, in their living room, at the kitchen table or out on the deck under the pines.
Singing and playing all alone can be intimidating and challenging, even for an accomplished musician, but these kids stuck with it and submitted their best performances.
On Sunday, May 31st at 5:00 pm, the show went on as each of these 100+ individual submissions, stitched together with their classmates into 8 songs, took hundreds of friends and family across the country on a musical journey back decade by decade over 80 years.
