Virtual Choir for the Rest of Us, Part 1.

“We’ve all seen gorgeous “Hollywood Squares” videos of virtual choir music, but what if your budget, and your choir’s technical comfort, is small? Carol Spradling, Director of Music at a Congregational church in New England, decided that the COVID “stay at home” order was going to mean that her small but mighty choir was going to adapt, rather than disband. Using Zoom rehearsals, smartphones, electronically distributed music, and the online digital audio workstation BandLab, she and her choir started scaling the learning curve between live choral singing and digital recording. This is a hands-on, nuts-and-bolts course in how to produce socially distanced audio recordings of your choir or ensemble (from home), using smartphones, laptops, and free software.”

Please download the BandLab app prior to attending this webinar, as it will be used in both workshops.
