Tonight, we release the first of three videos in our fall Virtual Choir Project Series Feel the Spirit. The Tour Choirs have been hard at work preparing this performance of I Am The Gentle Light from composer Paul Mealor. You can watch from any device right here on our website, or watch on YouTube. Streaming is available at 7:30 p.m.
These online videos are an innovative way for us to provide performance opportunities to our singers. They also provide a new and unique challenge for singers used to ensemble singing.
“Virtual choirs require a different set of tools for our choristers,” Elizabeth Lenti said. “They’re challenged to sing individually, with the magic of a collective voice only revealed to everyone when the video is complete.”
These projects are one of the ways we’re remaining accessible to our community during the ongoing pandemic. You can help us keep our program accessible with a gift today.
