The chorus continues to meet weekly, primarily by Zoom.  During the summer we had a few socially distanced outdoor gatherings.  In in the fall for a few weeks some of us gathered in a parkade with lots of fresh air. 

With the cancellation of events this year our contributions to Harmonize for Speech have been significantly reduced, if you would like to contribute, here is the link to their website:   Harmonize for Speech

 

During most of November, we had been getting together at a Parkade.  Each week every member does a self-assessment before attending.  We were spacing ourselves out and can produce music together. 

In August and September, some of us carefully came together outdoors Tuesday nights to sing in a large circle.  This has been an exciting and enjoyable improvement over Zoom, but has other challenges for singers.  The distances between us and limitations on sound production outdoors limits the quality of sound we can produce.  

 

During June, July and October we held regular Zoom meetings every Tuesday night.  This gave us a chance to socialize virtually and practice some singing.  Barbershop singing is known for close harmony and singing together to create amazing sounds without the need of compliment.  We like to match our sounds with others and ring chords.  That does not happen during a live Zoom session. 

Screen print from one of our Zoom sessions early in the summer:

We continue to monitor Public Health recommendations and how other singing organizations are working through the pandemic. Everyone is looking forward to eventually getting back to getting together and singing together in the future. 

When we cancelled our March 17 practice, we had no idea that months later we would still be severely limited in our interactions and singing enjoyment. 


 

Our style of music is four-part vocal harmony and you might be surprised at the variety of music and entertainment.  There are several groups in Ontario that are part of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  Take a look as some of the You Tube videos from various local groups to explore Barbershop style music.
