SING THE NORTH travelled virtually to the Yukon Territory to sing Northern Lights by Ola Gjeilo – a stunning 6-part SATB visionary hymn to the most mysterious phenomenon of the night.
The video for our Northern Lights project is currently in production. Please check back to this page later this summer to view our Northern Lights video.
Every SING THE NORTH project features a trip in our virtual choir tour bus, a special session when we travel together as a choir to a different part of Canada to meet the people who live and work there.
The town of Watson Lake stands on the remote Alaska Highway, just north of the British Columbia border, which doubles as the Earth's 60th parallel of latitude.
The Yukon Territory, a vast stretch of almost entirely untouched wilderness of 482,443 km² (186,272 square miles), is one of the best places on earth to view the spectacular Aurora borealis, commonly known as the Northern Lights.
For our project on Ola Gjeilo's Northern Lights, we are travelling along the Alaska Highway in the STN Virtual Choir Tour Bus to Watson Lake to visit the Northern Lights Space & Science Centre, where we will be given a personal tour by the Centre's curator, Corrine Zozula.
Corrine will take the choir through the Centre's hands-on exhibitions, which include a secret recipe for making your own Northern Lights!
