The RCDS Concert Choir shares this powerful virtual performance of Resilience by composer Abbie Bettins from the Justice Choir Songbook. The students recorded their vocals individually, having rehearsed under the music direction of Music Department Chair Mary Marcell. Once the individual tracks were submitted, the final audio track was edited and mastered by the departmental accompanist, piano teacher and chamber music coach Keith Burton (Mr. Burton also plays the djebmbe on the track). In addition, students were asked to take a selfie or submit a photo that represents what resilience or the song Resilience means to them, and Ms. Marcell created a video montage of the images to augment the choir’s moving message.
