Shanti Gruber’s varsity choir class was in the midst of rehearsals for their recital season when COVID-19 shut down everything—classrooms included—last spring. 

“Our spring semester is where we do a lot of travel, we have big concerts, we have competitions,” said Gruber. 

Gruber is also the district lead music teacher, and the choir director for both the high school, and Glenwood Springs Middle School. She’s taught her varsity choir group since they were in 6th grade. The ensemble ultimately had to scrap their in-person performance due to public health protocols, and record one song virtually together instead.

So he decided to make a documentary. 

On Friday, a group of Glenwood Springs High School students joined teens all around the globe, demanding government action on climate change.
