Rosenethe Singers' Zoom Meetings
The Committee members were keen to establish a means for choir members to be able to stay in touch during the first COVID-19 lockdown. 'Zoom' was the tool used to rehearse and meet together online and the committee and Kevin will continue to provide this means of rehearsal until we can meet in person once more.
All members are very welcome to join in. If you would rather not have on your camera, that is fine! You can still watch everyone else in the rehearsal and participate at home. It will never be as good as singing together and is quite odd at first. You can hear a few recordings a number of us made last year at 'Virtual choir recordings'. If you would like to chat about trying a rehearsal this way, please contact any of the committee members. Otherwise, just click here or on the link below around 7.25pm on Wednesday evenings and it should launch the meeting for you.
Breaks at the Zoom rehearsals consist of Zoom break-out rooms so that we can chat together in small groups. This has been very positive and we've come to know each other much more than we did a year ago.
During the current 2021 term, as well as revising King Arthur (Purcell) and Messiah (Handel), we have been learning a selection of Nordic Songs that Kevin has provided. A little Swedish, Danish and Icelandic to add to our ever-increasing repertoire of languages!
Zoom Rehearsal, Wednesday, 24th March, 7.30pm
Special guest this week - Areti Lymperopoulou
