Talented Music Teacher Performs Touching Cello Cover of ‘Pure Imagination’ for Graduating Eighth Grade Class

In celebration of the graduating eighth grade class of 2020 at the Chicago Waldorf School, musician and music teacher Brendan Finucane performed a touching cello cover of the song “Pure Imagination”.

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you’ll be free, if you truly wish to be

This amazing song was originally perferomed by the late, greatly missed Gene Wilder in the classic 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
