The COVID-19 pandemic made life in the music room a little different this fall. Due to regulations on singing, Echo Park students worked incredibly hard in class and at home to learn the song “Thankful” in American Sign Language. Their hard work not only came together to create a wonderful new piece of art but gave us the chance to look deeper into the way some friends at Echo Park communicate. Even during a pandemic with no singing, we were able to find the silver lining that sometimes the most beautiful performances are seen, not just heard.
