Choiring during COVID-19
We are very sad that we haven't been able to continue with our rehearsals and performances, but the COVID-19 outbreak is an unprecedented global crisis which we all have a role in controlling. As you know, we can do our part by staying home and being considerate and safe.
We can, of course, keep singing and keep listening!
To help you out, keep the vocal chords moving and the spirits high, we have compiled some resources to help you along. We will try to bring new things to you, and please send through any suggestions to email@example.com
As soon as we have the all-clear, we will be back and singing up a storm! In the meantime, make good use of music to keep yourself engaged and those endorphins flowing.
While we've been in isolation, we thought we'd reach out to some of past performers and students, and who better than our former accompanist Harrison Collins? We visited Harry online, and shared him on Facebook! Check it out!
The concert that couldn’t: Cantique du Paradis
Want to do a Cantique du Paradis word search puzzle? Of course you do!
What else can I do at home? So many things! Cheryl Porter, singing coach, has some fantastic videos for you to sing along to. These COVID-19-themed exercises are great for getting your diaphragm working and your body singing. There are also several, national and international, collaborative projects that you can contribute to, like Adam Woolf’s Bach Together and Couch Choir’s giant 1000-person video.
