Sharing music in this fashion, says Busarow, is a remarkable opportunity for the choir, especially in this unprecedented year of COVID-19 restrictions.

Since the Fort Wayne Children's Choir has been unable to perform this season due to COVID-19 restrictions, it turned its focus to recording a brand new holiday album called Sing! Choirs of Angels.The collection includes a performance of Robert Shaw's "The Many Moods of Christmas," accompanied by a full orchestra. Other seasonal pieces listeners will connect with is "This Little Babe" from Benjamin Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols," and "Lightsongs," by Fort Wayne Philharmonic bassist, Adrian Mann.

"Music is something that helps bring people together," says Jonathan Busarow, the choir's Executive Artistic Director, "and after a time where we have been so far apart, and away from one another, it's great when we can come together, and to make music."

For a look at the project's scope and purpose, WBOI's Julia Meek talked with the Busarow via zoom to learn what impact the experience has made on everyone involved.

You can find out more and order a copy of Sing! Choir of Angels at the Children's Choir website.
