In September, the Lews & Clark High School chamber choir began learning a new piece, "Ubi Caritas," working as a full ensemble and in sectionals. Last month, they had the unique opportunity of interviewing the song's composer, Ola Gjeilo, on a video call, all the way from NYC. Ola graciously donated his time, and students made the most of it by asking intelligent and thoughtful questions. After the interview, they completed their recordings.
"I am so very proud of these young people," said LC Choir Director Sara Carroll, "and their commitment to understanding, rehearsing, and performing. They look forward to learning more music this year, in whatever capacity that may be.
"This is a truly sensitive, artistic, and dedicated group of young people, and that is plain to see in their work!"
"And may we love each other with a sincere heart" ~ last line from Ubi Caritas, translated from Latin.
