Making music together is one of the most wonderful things about music. This year, the Year 9 Music Elective class has had a lot of opportunities to perform together as an ensemble. The audio is a mix of the students’ live performance recordings and their own studio recordings. This live arrangement is based on Rascal Flatts’ version from Cars (Pixar Animation).
