Eight fourth- and fifth-graders from Hillcrest Elementary School will have their voices on a global stage next month at the XX Commonwealth
Games in Glasgow, Scotland. They are among 2,200 children from 80 countries participating in the first global virtual youth choir. The children recorded themselves singing “What If” by contemporary composer Eric Whitacre. The individual videos will be edited together into a video to be shown to a live audience at the games and broadcast to the television audience.
