2020 has presented the Coatesville Area String Orchestra with many difficulties and obstacles. When we discussed the options of a virtual winter concert, we were determined to try out best as a group to put something together. For the CASO, Silent Night is the last song to be played at our winter concert every year.

A lot of time and effort went into putting this whole project together. The students spent a while learning and preparing the music on top of learning how to record their audio and video properly. Another student took on the responsibility of mixing the audio by himself. And I put the audio and videos together.

I'm very proud of the product we created and hope that this version of Silent Night can be replayed for years to come! We wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy winter break this year!
