Scatter, as from an unextinguish’d hearth”
Spring has already arrived, but the impact of COVID-19 still exists. In order to thank the medical staff and volunteers for their selfless contribution and hard work in the recent outbreak, students in Luwan BC School have created a project to musically express their appreciation.
In this project, Grade 12 students (Catherine, Anita, and Virginia) and Grade 11 students Jenny, Vanessa, and Tim take part in the video editing, music selecting and the actual recording of their singing. The song selected is written by Tiffany Su, a student from Port Moody Secondary School. She is the founder of Crowd Chorus, an organization that promotes action and awareness through music. This song shows and expresses the impact of the epidemic, gratitude toward medical workers, and hope for a better tomorrow. During this project, Anita organized it by dividing the singing parts, deciding what equipment to shoot with, and editing the music video while Catherine took the initiative and is responsible for editing, tuning the video and completing the video.
For the singing, many students participated in the process of rehearsing and recording the singing. A high-quality music video was finally completed, and with sincerity, we dedicate it to our medical workers.
Just as Shelley said:
“If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”
