Chamber ChoirTake a moment and let the T.C. Roberson High School Chamber Choir share a stirring and breathtaking performance of 'Earth Song,' written by Frank Ticheli and directed by Aleisa Baker. You won't be disappointed.

Choral Director Aleisa Baker chose this piece for its relevance to our world's need for hope and unity in this trying time.

"During a time when live performance is not possible," she said, "we wanted to continue to create music, not only to fill our own hearts but also inspire others in our community. The poetry speaks for itself. The arts will always be a place for us to come together to find hope in each other and the future."

🎶  'Earth Song' by Frank Ticheli

Sing, Be, Live, See.
This dark stormy hour,
The wind, it stirs.
The scorched earth
cries out in vain:
O war and power,
You blind and blur,
The torn heart
cries out in pain.
But music and singing
Have been my refuge,
And music and singing
Shall be my light.
A light of song
Shining Strong: Alleluia!
Through darkness, pain, and strife,
I'll Sing, Be, Live, See.
Peace.
