In collaboration with Geelong Youth Choir, local composer Callum Watson, has written a new carol paying tribute to the many aspects that will make this a Christmas like no other – with the international borders being shut, some State borders closed and countries such as Germany entering a hard lockdown given the pandemic.
Unfortunately, many families across the world will have to stay apart this Christmas for the greater good.
Composed and performed during the height of the Victorian COVID-19 lockdown as a virtual choir – with each chorister sending in a separate recording on their phone to be compiled in the studio. The carol reflects on the border closers which will make Christmas 2020 unlike any other! This project is supported by the City of Greater Geelong through its ‘Community Investment and Support Fund’. With thanks to Geelong Youth Choir.
