“I heard the bells on Christmas Day / Their old familiar carols play / And wild and sweet, the words repeat / Of peace on earth, good-will to men." – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
If there ever was a time to sing for Hope, Peace, Kindness, Love, and Healing now is that TIME. This coming Christmas will probably be the most difficult holiday season for all people that love choir singing, and love sharing their voices during the Christmas season.
With this in mind I came up with the idea of organizing the VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS CAROLERS. This will be a great way to "spread Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear."
And here I will share with you all how this will work! :)
VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS CAROLERS
Who can join the Christmas Carolers?
Anyone who loves to sing and wishes to be a virtual caroler this coming Christmas season ! No previous experience is required!
We are going to use ZOOM for all of our rehearsals! It is really easy to use zoom! I will guide you each step of the way!
All rehearsals are "normal" following the same pattern used in in person rehearsals. No, nothing can replace the in person experience but we will still be able to connect and communicate with each other through our love of singing.
You do not need to commit to all rehearsals. You may pick and choose which rehearsals you want to attend.
All scores will be sent to you through e-mail.
Each one of you will receive an accompaniment track for each one of the songs.
We begin rehearsing on Tuesday, September 22 from 4 - 5:30 pm
My experience with virtual rehearsals?
I teach singing online since 2014 and I have conducted virtual choir rehearsals since March of this year.
I have extensive experience with sound editing and video making.
Our Christmas Concert
My goal for us all is to perform a virtual concert made up of a wide
variety of Christmas songs from around the world.
Each one of you (only if you wish to) will video or audio record the
songs and send them to me. I will then edit and mix the sound and
produce the videos which will be compiled in a beautiful and heartfelt
live virtual concert that you can share with your friends and loved ones!
