A video of an elementary school chorus singing Phish‘s “Turtle In The Clouds” has been warming the hearts of Phish fans on Reddit and other social media platforms.
The adorable and impressively on-key rendition was performed by students at Founders Memorial School in Essex, VT at their recital on Tuesday, January 31st. The song was originally part of Phish’s 2018 Halloween set, when the band performed as the fictional Scandinavian rock band Kasvot Växt.
The chorus was led by Megan Ferris, who selected the song and accompanied the children on piano during the recital. She can be heard introducing the song, saying, “The song doesn’t make much sense, but it’s really fun.”
Footage of the performance drew positive reactions from the Phish community after Ferris’s husband posted it to the r/phish subreddit. Ferris responded to the attention in an Instagram comment, saying she was “blown away by the positivity!” She added, “I can’t wait to share your kind words with the chorus.”
