This Christmas, Water City Music has brought together choirs from primary schools across the UK to bring some badly needed festive cheer to a country facing its first Christmas under the shadow of the Covid19 Pandemic.
More than 1000 youngsters rehearsed in their school bubbles in preparation for a one-off presentation of the ever-popular festive song, Walking in a Winter Wonderland.
Each choir’s performance was videoed and sent to Water City’s editing elves who weaved their magic to combine each school’s individual efforts into a giant virtual choir. The finished festive film will be launched – on YouTube – at midday on Friday (December 11th.)
Last summer, the Pandemic also forced the cancellation of our main annual event, the Tower of London Festival. It left more than 2000 children from 69 schools extremely disappointed.
But all was not lost! We were still determined the youngsters would have something to show for all their efforts.
So, pupils from across London learned a song, taught to them by WCM online, and then uploaded their individual recordings. Our video editor, Adam Saunders took over from there, and turned them into a giant virtual choir
