Lift Every Voice And Sing

In honor of Black History Month, the Algonquin band, chorus and orchestra students collaborated on a virtual performance of “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”  The students worked very hard on this project, and we are so excited to share it with you. Special thanks to ARHS senior, Jack Dobosh, who volunteered his time and expertise on the video editing/production for us.

We hope you enjoy the performance:

Thank you,

Amy, Eric and Olivia
