This video was too awesome not to share. This is Jim Barthelman’s 5th grade class–and a number of good-natured adults–of Quinhagak, Alaska performing the Hallelujah chorus from Handel’s Messiah. Quinhagak (pronounced quin hah guk) is a small Yupik Eskimo village of 680 residents in Western Alaska.
The kids were originally slated to perform the song live, but they were too shy so their teacher came up with the idea of making a music video instead. Have a happy holiday season!
