This email was sent to the Chorale by our Director, Matt Travis, on August 24:

Hey Everyone,

I hope this finds you well. I’ve been thinking of each of you often and as always, please let me know how I can be of support to you and your families. I’ve made the difficult decision that there will be no in-person choral rehearsals or performances through December. A final determination will be made about the spring in December. It was not an easy decision, but ultimately given the recently released data and in conjunction with decisions made by other choral institutions and schools in our state, this is the best path forward to ensure the safety of all involved. This is NOT to say we will not have choral events.

Beginning on Monday, October 5, we will have a series of six, one-hour long virtual rehearsals using the platform Zoom. If you haven’t used Zoom, fear not – it’s really easy. All you have to do is click a link! We will provide each of you with the music in a DropBox link that you can read on your computer or print at home. We will vocalize, briefly look at Mozart Requiem (we are going to do it sometime, by golly!), and we will rehearse a Holiday tune, which will be the culmination of our fall season as this will be recorded and edited and become a virtual choir project.

In this period of quarantine, one of the things I have missed the most is singing and making music with all of you. While we can’t do that in the traditional way, I look forward to doing so in this new manner. Most of all, I am so excited to see your faces, and to enjoy our time on Monday evenings together. Look for more information and a more formal schedule in the coming weeks. Can’t wait to see you soon!

Sending hugs,

MT
