Sisterhood, Song, and Strength
- Concert Preparation
We are beginning timeline planning for our winter virtual concert. The singers are getting ready for voice checks and memorization deadlines for our first piece, “Wanting Memories”.
Our program this term is themed “Share the Momentum”. Inspired by the works of black artists, specifically black female composers, we seek to highlight the voices and experiences of minority communities. In addition, we wish to express the challenges we have overcome as individuals and a choral community throughout the pandemic. “Share the Momentum” symbolizes our resilience as human beings, and the continuation of our efforts to grow and learn from one another. With this concert theme, our voices will create a platform to echo our shared values of unity and acceptance.
The virtual concert will be available in July, after our amazing film team polishes it up!
- Winter Hybrid Rehearsals
Our winter rehearsals have been happening as scheduled so far! For the first time since the pandemic started we are allowed to hold in-person rehearsals at the MLB. To accommodate those who are outside of Ann Arbor or are otherwise unable to come, we have been using a hybrid model with part of the choir in the same room and part on a Zoom call.
