SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — When the pandemic shut down the holiday concert plans of Paradigm High School, students made an extra effort because everyone knows the show must go on.

Orchestra students at the South Jordan charter school held a fundraiser in October to gather enough money to hire a professional photographer to film their concert so they could share it with fellow students and parents.

As the holidays draw closer, the orchestra released its rendition of the classic "Sleigh Ride" on YouTube for all to enjoy.

"Musicians in the orchestra are passionate about playing with each other! They are dedicated to creating beautiful music that will bring peace, love and light to the world!" said a statement on the orchestra's YouTube page.
