Virtual Choir Rehearsals

For GALA singers, a chance to meet and sing once a week offers solace, joy and a sense of community. Many GALA choirs are currently offering weekly sectionals, full chorus rehearsals and opportunities for members to connect socially through virtual platforms.

The detailed instructions below are designed for a virtual rehearsal using Zoom but a list of other video platforms is available at the end of the document. Keep in mind that singers and directors alike will need to modify expectations for rehearsals. Working on blend and balance will not be possible, but learning notes, creating community and hosting a place for sharing is very possible and very important. Read on!

In addition to the above, many choruses are finding success with synchronous online singing using platforms such as Jamulus, JackTrip, or SoundJack.

Here is a montage from New Jersey Gay Men's Chorus using SoundJack (audio) and LiveLab (video) This is a Facebook page for SoundJack users.
