Session Description:

A huge component of what we do in choir is perform, evaluate, and perform again – hopefully with improvement. That’s the arc to a successful rehearsal that leads to a successful performance and is also the structure that allows our singers to grow as musicians. But how do we do that with virtual choir? An iterative approach to virtual choir projects incorporates multiple rounds of recording to create an experience that feels more like a real rehearsal process, include less skilled singers, and get better performance results. This webinar will walk you through the entire process and provide you with example resources of how to do this on your own!


Recordings: If you are unable to join for one or both sessions, recordings will be posted to YouTube and linked on our social media accounts!


We hope to see you this Saturday!
