Okay, we admit it. The current COVID-19 pandemic and its repercussions throughout our communities have thrown us for a bit of a loop. As we continue to look at how this new reality is affecting our lives, our economy, and our arts, we have – like most of you, we’re sure – been a bit lost about what to do to make things better.
But what we haven’t been lost about is continuing to make music together. Yes, since this whole thing started here in Denver, Gaudete has continued to meet weekly to rehearse, enjoy music together, and keep our choir members connected and cared for – all virtually, through Zoom. Alto and board member Joyce Witte shows you how, here:
Virtual rehearsing has its challenges, certainly. We can’t actually listen to each other because of computer lag. But we can all turn off our microphones and sing along to the piano, adeptly played by Kris, our accompanist, who, along with director David, is committed to helping us keep singing.
Because we can do this, we are looking forward to being able to bring you some virtually created inspiration soon! We’re working on that project now. If you’d like to help us keep up that good work, please consider donating to us at paypal.me/GaudeteSingersDenver or by clicking our “make a donation” button at the bottom of this page.
We will continue to bring uplifting music now and into the future. And when we gather again to sing for you in person, we will all rejoice!
Be safe. Be healthy.
