“This magnificent documentary chronicles the rise of a musical miracle in an inauspicious place and under seemingly impossible conditions: the emergence of what is being called the best Catholic choir in the United States in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah. The film captures the incredible hard work, the vision, the beauty of the endeavor, but also the underlying humility and service ethic of the principle players. The Choir School is changing lives and lifting hearts; this documentary captures that same progressive and hopeful spirit.”

“It doesn’t happen as often with music for me as it use to…(particularly with certain kinds of jazz & rock’n’roll), … but I can still get ‘it’ with this choir… and all I can do (say) is… ‘wow!’
