THE LATEST NEWS from the United Voices Choir, July 2020
Greetings to our loyal supporters!
We hope that you and your families are doing well as we all gradually emerge from the initial darkness of the Covid tunnel and move towards the light. The pandemic has changed our lives and, like all other choirs and performing groups, the United Voices Choir is now facing a ‘new normal’. We study our music without meeting face-to-face, without singing together in the same room, and sadly without performing for a live audience. These challenging circumstances also create opportunities and our choir is taking advantage of these opportunities by continuing to prepare for the day when we can sing together once again and perform for you.
We have been busy selecting the music for future performances and we are working hard to learn that music, both individually and in weekly virtual rehearsals. We are looking forward with great anticipation to performing the traditional classical repertoire of the great composers in our community’s traditional spaces, but we are also imagining the possibilities of on-line performances, flash-mob singing events, outdoor concerts, and performances outside care facilities for those who cannot go out.
We will keep you informed of new developments as they occur and we are looking ahead optimistically to the day when Dr. Bonnie Henry gives choral singers the ‘all clear’.
We continue to welcome new members, so if you or anyone you know would be interested in “dropping in” to one of our virtual rehearsals please contact our music director, Dr. Greg Caisley (director@voices choir.ca).
Virtual rehearsals will begin again on September 15th, 2020, and we will continue to keep you updated regarding our future plans. We look forward to singing for you, and with you, soon.
All good wishes to you and your families for continued good health and happier days ahead.
