The UMass Lowell University Choir spent the end of this crazy Spring 2020 semester putting together a virtual choir performance of Jake Runestad’s “Let My Love Be Heard.” The performance is dedicated to everyone that has been effected by the COVID-19 outbreak in small and large ways, as well as the brave health professionals that are working so hard to keep us all safe.
Sleep by Leo Folan (music studies 2023) mixed by Brad Presta (SRT) is an instrumental concept album that is meant to take the listener on a journey through a full nights sleep. From the lullaby that puts you to sleep, the good dreams, a nightmare, and waking up. The artwork is done by Sarah Sullivan (studio art 2023) and fully captures the sound of a restless sleep through the tired eyes of the character .
