“Singing is the most personal form of artistic expression; it is our own unique voice lifted to new heights through song.” -Brittany Carroll
We welcome the Onteora community to enjoy our rendition of “Sing to Me” by Andrea Ramsey. Ramsey’s beautiful composition borrows text from Ella Wheeler Wilcox’s poem of the same name. The poem appears in Wilcox’s best-known work, “Poems of Passion.” We find it quite fitting to share this song with you as singing is our shared passion in the Onteora Chorus.
The photography included throughout the video are examples of student work from our very own Onteora Art Department. Inspired by master photographers such as Robert Frank and his book, “The Americas,” photography students complete an assignment entitled "My Catskills" where they take photographs to try and convey a "sense of place" and in this case our home, the Catskill region.
Thank you to the students who shared their voice to make this recording possible and thank you to Jennifer Wentland and her photography students for the beautiful photographs that you will see throughout the video. We hope you enjoy and as always, thank you for your continued support of the Onteora Music and Art Departments.
