Project Description

Mary’s Boy Child is a lesser-known calypso Christmas Carol performed around the world. This upbeat, fun arrangement was masterfully done by Stephen Nelson and performed with GENTRI and Rise Up Children’s Choir! This video, along with the much more somber Gladsome Light video, were both filmed on the same day. Trying to film two videos and combining over 150 performers in a barn in Alpine Utah was an intense experience but we couldn’t be happier with the final product. GENTRI is a lot of fun, but adding all of the bright smiling faces of the Rise Up Children’s Choir made the whole experience a lot more fun. It was an honor to be included on GENTRI’s discography as part of an ongoing collaboration. GENTRI appeared on Lyceum Philharmonic’s “Turning Hearts” album and Lyceum Philharmonic recorded this track for GENTRI’s catalog. We also scheduled a concert that was supposed to take place in spring of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, that concert is still in the works.
