Viva la Choir!
The English School Lockdown Choir. While all was quiet during the lockdown period, the English School Senior Choir members refused to be silent.
After many requests by the students themselves, the lockdown choir was formed, and the wheels were set to motion. Former choir members joined from all around the world and rehearsals were now moved to a virtual space instead of their much-beloved music room.
Coldplay’s ‘Viva La Vida’ holds a special place in the choir’s history, and it has been a firm favourite over the past few years. The song, which translates to “Long live life”, is a homage to what the world has been going through during the pandemic. Life, music and art must go on!
