In the spirit of what Syrendell is all about - sharing the joys of the arts and music and connections - here is a video produced by daughter Joey Tan with her friend Katie Krasnansky. They spent an afternoon at home arranging, editing, performing, and recording Lana Del Rey's Summertime Sadness as a cover song.
Joey is with the Davis Senior High School's Jazz Choir under the direction of Mr. Bill Zinn, and Katie was also with the Choir and graduated from high school this year. Mr. Zinn is a brilliant teacher guiding his students to find their own brilliance. The opportunities that Joey has had to choose music, arrange, create ensembles, and perform on stage have given Joey (and her classmates) the self-esteem and self-confidence to share their beautiful voices with us.
Please enjoy this piece - a collaboration of brilliance and friendship.
Have a joyful day!
