Online singing is going strong
We continue to sing!
New members are welcome!
If you are interested in joining us please contact our membership secretary on email@example.com or our Musical Director Harriet Johnson on firstname.lastname@example.org who sends us the links to the Zoom rehearsals.
It is a year since we started to sing via weekly Zoom rehearsals. Technology has not beaten us and the majority of the choir are joining each week to sing a variety of repertoire. Currently this is a selection of songs from the book ‘In the Mood’ which contains choral arrangements of well known jazz songs. We have been singing Ain’t Misbehavin, Tea for Two, Night and Day and Begin the Beguine and Let’s Do It. We will continue to practise these songs and others in the summer term.
Yes it is harder to sing online and on your own (unless you happen to have a partner in song). We have help in the form of sectional teaching and backing tracks, piano accompaniment and even if it’s not perfect we enjoy the company and the music.
With some very tentative plans to sing together in the future and an increasing number of us receiving our doses of the vaccine we are hopeful that we can make use of better weather and sing outside in the summer.
