Covid-19 meant that The Choir was unable to meet to rehearse or perform live concerts for most of 2020. Despite this The Choir met regularly online to rehearse, keeping the repertoire alive and enabling members to see each other every week, whilst singing from the safety of their own homes.
It was then decided to hold the LOMVC annual Christmas Concert online using Zoom on 18th December 2020.
The programme included recordings of some The Choir’s favourite Christmas pieces, readings, poems and a singalong of carols and Christmas songs.
The participants soon met the Zoom maximum of 100 and with many homes having two or more to a screen there were significantly more taking part, some from overseas. Not exactly a complete substitute for the real thing, but still a rewarding experience for The Choir and their friends.
