Our experiments to re-establish in-person rehearsals worked out very well, so we have decided to continue! Survey results from our members revealed that we have several people who want to only rehearse live, several who only want to continue online, several who want to do both, and others who simply want to wait until this situation ends and things get back to normal. To accommodate as many as we can we are alternating live and online rehearsals, which appears to be a unique approach.We will continue this as long as we have to.
We are still working on how to safely perform for our audiences, like we did several times a year before the pandemic. This is our next big challenge.
Probably what matters most during this time is that we can assemble, in various ways, to enjoy each other's company and sing for the sheer pleasure of it. We first got together around this cherished gift to each other, and we will keep it alive.
