SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The show must go on, even in the middle of a pandemic.

Usually they'd be performing live at Davies Symphony Hall, but not this year.

This year's show had an island flavor to it, featuring music from the Caribbean as well as the Philippines.

Work started on this performance back in September.

Members recorded individual videos for this elaborate production.

"We're talking about 400, more than 400 videos that we put together in one piece," said Valérie Sainte-Agathe. "It's amazing to see that. It's very impressive. Again, a way to gather the community."

Some of the performers are as young as 4-years-old.
