TOOLS & IDEAS
We are seeing the coronavirus pandemic cause widespread disruptions and tragedies. In the United States, as cities and states implement measures to prevent the spread as much as possible, public events are being cancelled or postponed, and many school districts are closing or moving to online classes.
At the same time, we are witnessing the creativity, ingenuity, and leadership of choral professionals and the wider choral community as we create and share resources to help themselves and others. This page, a work in progress, is an attempt to collect many of these ideas and suggestions in one place: Resources for Choral Professionals During the Pandemic.
