Our long-awaited sequel to the “Call me Maybe” video has finally arrived! The 3Penny Chorus and Orchestra recorded our newest choral/orchestral cover, this time of the 1984 British pop anthem, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” On Dec. 10, 80 volunteer singers and players gathered together in New Haven CT to rehearse and record our classical treatment of Midge Ure and Bob Geldof’s classic anthem.
Like the original version, which was written to raise awareness and funds for the 1983 famine in Ethiopia, our cover also aims to raise money for charity. Visit our page with Action Against Hunger here:
Special thanks to everyone who helped make this video possible, especially Sachin Ramabhadran for his terrific work editing the video, and to our friends at Yale Divinity School, the Institute of Sacred Music, and the Yale School of Music! Happy holidays, everyone!
