Service of Harmony & Hi Mike



Recently finished a short feature project on the Madeleine Choir School here in Salt Lake City. To steal a quote from the story, "If you were asked to name a Utah choir that toured Europe and sang at St. Peters Basilica in Rome, you'd likely pick the wrong choir." I have always wanted to photograph the school and choir which is a mission of the Cathedral of the Madeleine. The students at the school were all very warm and friendly kids, couldn't believe how well mannered they were. After I had visited the school a few times, they would wave short little waves and say "Hi Mike," en route to the next class. Usually at schools, it's something like, "HEY picture guy..." "HEY camera guy..." "HEY put me on tv"... The choir school kids were different, perhaps it's the music that surrounds their life or the purpose and message of that music.

Either way, if you are interested, here is the VIDEO I put together with some stills.
Enjoy.
