NOAH Virtual Choir

The first PWA NOAH Choir made its debut at NOAHCon2018, and received such a positive response, we brought back the opportunity to join in song, but this time through a long-distance, “virtual” project. The 2020 choir members created a special recording and music video of the song “You Will Be Found” from the Broadway Musical Dear Evan Hansen. Coordinated by Marleena Barber, participants received practice materials and instructions on how to record their part. The final product, mixed and mastered audio synced to video of the entire “virtual” choir, made its world premiere on Sunday, July 12th.

We are so excited to share the final product: www.vimeo.com/albinism/pwachoir
