Erin's youth choir (based in Nelson) came to our town to do a couple of performances last weekend. They sang a lot of songs -- a full concert program all to themselves. Some were musically stunning, some beautifully theatrical, some had great solos. This one is just plain inspiring. It incorporates the "Lost Generation" poem from AARP's YouTube contest "U@50" and there's just something about all these teenagers earnestly holding up cards and then singing so beautifully that makes me want to cry. Enjoy.
Edited to add: Okay, I watch my kids play their violins and pianos and violas and it's all cool. But I sit here and watch videos of their choral performances over and over and over again ... and I cry every time. What's with that? Clicking "play" yet again ...
