A new video from the choir Konektis

Proud mama brag: my son Paul Archambault was the sound engineer, and the videographer Rob Lovatt was one of my piano students way back when.

The singers are from the school of music at Brandon University, and the location is downtown Brandon, Manitoba.

Enjoy!

I did.  That was very well done.  Thanks for showing that to us.

Thanks for posting everyone.

>Pentatonix

I'm sitting here listening to them, my wife come in...

me: Wow, these guys really harmonize well!
wife: Pentatonix? Yeah, they're amazing
me: Am I the only one who doesn't know about them?
wife: Yes, I think so.

> Pentatonix

To my chagrin I've become a bit of a fanboy of Pentatonix.  They have this way of putting a different spin on the tunes they are covering and somehow making it theirs.  This on top of their vocal skills.

Don't miss: O Come All Ye Faithful

Also don't miss their covers of:

Sound of Silence
Amazing Grace
Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen guitarist, Brian May, has twice posted the link to this cover on his Facebook page.

It's a cover, but they do it well.

Okay... this will be a little different. "Pierre," by Carole King.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToVHzUDYJgU

This came up because the six-year-old up the street always says, "Maayyybee" with a shrug when I ask if he wants to go for a bike ride or something. I said he was like Pierre and neither he nor his mom (born in 1980) had any idea who that was. The books came out in 1962 and were a staple in my house. The Carole King album came out in 1975 and my sister, by then 20, immediately bought it and we played it enough times that I can still mostly sing along.

Some of the best kids books and kids music, forgotten in our decadent times ;-)

New to me too.  When watching and noting the 70s feel to it I was thinking that maybe it was going to be some type of Zen lesson in Freedom from Wanting at first -- it ended up going in the opposite direction.

I forgot to mention my favorite part - unlike almost everything else on Youtube, if you go to that video, the playlist it feeds you is devoid of anger and conspiracy. There are some places where the algo is not yet perfected.
