Throwback to Mark Twain IS’ 25th Anniversary Zoom Celebration on International Children’s Day, 1st of June 2020 (6 months ago!), in full pandemic lockdown mode, when things seemed pretty bleak after 3 full months of remote learning.
And yet, Mark Twain IS students found strength and hope in music and singing, with a mission to celebrate our teaching-learning community (who all appear in the background during the song, in a sequence of clips from their actual online classes and activities at the time), and to send out a message of encouragement to peers around the globe, isolated and struggling with online schooling and with the uncertainty generated by the pandemic.
Note: The musical performance was recorded from their homes with limited audio-video technology and support, and then mastered by an IB DP Music student.
Student performers: Andreea F., Cezara E., Iana G-A., Margareta N., Maria B., Nikita T.
Music Teacher/Conductor; Musical Arrangement; Solo Appearance: Ioana Macovei Vlasceanu
Sound mastering & editing: Petre Macovei Vlasceanu, DP I student
You are truly amazing, guys. Well done!
