Get ready to sing with a choir again – sort of!
Every Friday we will be singing, but from our home to your home. Pull up a comfortable (and if you possible – private) space in which to sing with full voice! You will mostly stand while singing, whilst getting instruction and singing guidance using your computer, laptop, tablet or phone. We will have three to four choir leaders, Jane, Mark, Ruth and Elliot and each of them will be teaching parts to you (in breakout rooms). At the end we will all sing our parts together, with you singing along to three and four part harmony produced from our house.
If you get stuck the Zoom meeting ID is 813-5069-2115
If you are new to Zoom you might need some help so register early (30 minutes) and read the Who’s Who and What’s What in Zookestra. We can guide you on the phone to get online (but not at 2.55pm!!).
Most Zookestrans and Ukestrans pay through the very affordable ‘Uketen’. Details on that (for Australians) are here. A choir class is the same as a ukestra session ($13.50).
If you are Australian but don’t yet want to commit to a uketen, you can pay a casual fee of $17 via Direct Deposit.
