School closures throughout the nation have halted highly-anticipated campus events and activities with hundreds of thousands of students practicing social distancing at home.

While the annual Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) Choral Festival—originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 18—has been cancelled, our Chino Hills HS Chamber Singers demonstrated resilience by recording their individual a cappella portion of Over the Rainbow in their separate homes, and through technology were able to appear together as a family again.

Their harmonious performance was shared online for the CVUSD community with the goal of spreading hope and cheer during this difficult time.

When California officials ordered all schools to close amid the global coronavirus pandemic, the annual Chino Valley Unified School District Choral Festival had to be canceled. The news left many students, who had spent months preparing for the concert, devastated.

"It was really devastating for all of us knowing that we might not get the opportunity to sing together anymore," Camille Cortesone of the singers in the video, told . "Our choir is more of a family."

The students weren't going to let the shelter at home order stop them from sharing their music with the world. Each member of the choir sat down in front of their computer and recorded their part of the song, an acapella version of the Rainbow. This wasn't an easy task, and Cortes said it took her over two hours to get her part perfect.

The students weren't going to let the shelter at home order stop them from sharing their music with the world. Each member of the choir sat down in front of their computer and recorded their part of the song, an acapella version of Over the Rainbow. This wasn't an easy task, and Cortes said it took her over two hours to get her part perfect.

Once all 19 students had finished recording from the privacy of their homes, the footage was sent to a video editor who spent 36 hours piecing the song together. The finished product was posted on YouTube, where everybody in the world can enjoy the choir's rendition of Over the Rainbow.
