Which choir member are you?
I hope the link works: it's a fun quiz to see which type of chorister you are.
I got Soloist - those were the days!
We had a committee meeting last night via Zoom.
As you can see we were all very supportive when Judith had problems with her audio and was driven to drink!
Singing in a group is likely to be some way of yet but there are lots of different on-line/Zoom/Youtube based virtual choirs to consider to fill that void.
This one was emailed to me today.
I've no idea if it is good/bad/indifferent but some of you may be interested as they're doing a medley from "Les Miserables" in August.

Alos, this Friday (24th July, 5pm) they're doing Vivaldi's "Domine Fili unigenite" then next Friday (31st July, 5pm) it's Handels' Hallelujah Chorus.
If anyone has tried any other online choirs and wants to send suggestions/give feedback that would be great :)
For anyone who might be interested in a Zoom opera workshop.
