Join our VIRTUAL CHOIR and be “All Together Again” at the Special Event!

A message from our Special Event Producers …

Hi All,

We are producing the entertainment for the Oakwood Special Event scheduled for May 19 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel. This event honors Elementary School Principal Margo Long, who is retiring this year.

Many years ago, we produced a virtual choir for the Special Event called FOREVER YOUNG that was quite successful (see video below). Our goal is to make another one specifically designed for the finale of this year’s show. We have created an arrangement of “IT’S A WONDERFUL WORLD” that leads into an Elementary School favorite, “ALL TOGETHER AGAIN,” two songs we know Margo adores. The finished piece will be played with a live band accompaniment and live singers on stage. Our hope is that the audience will also join in at the end.

We are asking you, our beloved singing Oakwoodians past and present, to record and submit your own videos with the super easy instructions below. We have attached links to everything you will need to record your part on a laptop or other device. You will find all of the sheet music, guide vocals, and instructions for recording and uploading your video on the link below. Our deadline to receive your videos is Tuesday, APRIL 24.

Additionally, we will set up a computer and have assistance if you would like to stop by the Secondary School on April 19 from 6–8PM or on April 23 from 12–4PM to record your part in person. Please email this address to sign up for recording assistance: oakwoodvirtualchoir@gmail.com

We are so excited about this project and need your help. We hope you will participate!

Thank you in advance for taking part in this project.
