Watch: 750 Minnesota choir students sing patriotic hymn with the Aeolians

As we observe July Fourth, enjoy this soaring performance of "From Sea to Shining Sea" by the Aeolians of Oakwood University and about 750 Minnesota choir students performing as the STMA Festival Chorus, all directed by Jason Max Ferdinand.

Recorded by YourClassical MPR at a 2022 concert at St. Michael-Albertville High School in St. Michael, Minnesota, the work is subtitled "A Fantasy Based on ‘America the Beautiful’" — a celebratory, majestic piece for massed choir.
