Bell Virtual Choir
The Bell Virtual Choir was created in March 2020 in response to the Covid 19 coronavirus pandemic. Musicians around the world suddenly found themselves at home full-time, unable to rehearse or perform with other musicians. Many musicians wanted to continue to learn and perform new music. At the same time, I had just finished composing new choral music, but no choirs were available to learn and perform them. Using social media, I put out the call for any singers and instrumentalists who might be interested in trying a "choir from home" project. The Bell Virtual Choir was born!
The choir includes participants from various choirs across Canada, University music students, and even a few operatic soloists! Instrumentalists include orchestral and solo performers.
