The video was shot by Stillwater Area High School Assistant Principal Aaron Drevlow, who was chaperoning the concert choir’s tour that included a stop in Ames, Iowa.

The song, “O Day Full of Grace,” is a longtime Stillwater concert choir favorite written by Choir Director Erik Christiansen’s grandfather.
