Collins Hill High School orchestra is a YouTube sensation with virtual performance

In an age of people quarantining themselves at home because of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic, the Collins Hill High School orchestra has become an Internet sensation.

A month ago, the orchestra recorded a virtual performance of the song “A Million Dreams,” which is from the film “The Greatest Showman,” with each member performing in front of a computer camera from their respective homes. Collins Hill director of orchestras Rosie Riquelme came up with the idea of an online performance as a way to lift the spirits of the school’s student body, particularly its senior class, to whom the performance was dedicated.
