This video was produced by a final year student sound engineer, and you can hear four student violinists (two in 1st year), a student pianist and eight student singers. We wanted to have a ‘chorus conductor cam' and we have found that this has helped make our online rehearsals more engaging and exciting for our members... Each rehearsal we have a team of six student conductors who I mentor to take voice sectionals in breakout rooms and take a warmup. I am proud that we are still creating opportunities for our musicians to sing/produce/lead and make music despite the circumstances. We have over 100 members in Chorus with both our auditioned chamber choirs Ad Solem and the Cosmo Singers at 30 and 50 respectively. There is definitely scope for online education experience/training in this model and our students are gaining valuable experience... We have been able to set up an excellent YouTube channel where we upload piano accompaniment recordings for each piece which has helped members..
