Choir randomly discovers beautiful acoustics at zoo’s Reptile House (video)

From the YouTube page:

The choir from Harding University in Arkansas came to visit the Cincinnati Zoo. A few of them wandered into the Reptile House, which is also the oldest zoo building in the country. They noticed the acoustics and texted the rest of the choir to join them. Then this happened.

    I know this song as “Valley To Pray” from Arlo Guthrie’s 1971-72 LP ‘Washington County’.

  • JamesR

    Yeah, we’re gonna need a lot of singing for a long time. For now, excellent source of info here: http://vimeo.com/83717604 (this video kinda darkly humorous but real)

  • JamesR

    …for sure; that saying “peace” is relative, ie”Peace Keepers”, but theres truly a global amount of negligence with something so diabolically deadly to so much life.

    One of the suggested related videos after watching this one is one of the DD Robertson clan speaking to the school. Of course I didn’t watch it.

    How funny we thought nuclear armageddon would be brought upon by bombs and intent, and not peace and negligence.

  • Drew2u

    That is simply a beautiful arrangement. :)
    Anyone know which one this is?

  • mpeasee

    …that is really scaring the hell out of me, and its only getting worse from what I have been reading and hearing…I’m starting to believe that midnight is here…

    Gorgeous singing in a reptile room! This reminds me of the “Beauty in the Dark” lesson from Bablyon 5: http://youtu.be/Jli3ruqWYlc
