Spectrum Singers was to celebrate its 20th anniversary in May. What a milestone! It had been on the calendar for months. Invitations had been sent out to former members to have a reunion. No one expected to be staying at home. Spectrum Youth Singers were invited to sing at Carnegie Hall in New York in June. Music was being learned. Tours were being planned. No one expected to be staying at home. We wanted to present a wonderful concert to family and friends but there is peace in knowing we are all safe. We will sing again!
Spectrum Youth Singers have been rehearsing online during March and April. It has been wonderful to stay connected and to keep singing. We will resume rehearsals in the Fall and invite new members to join us! If in-person rehearsals are not be possible, we will adjust our curriculum to a virtual format. Online singing has reminded us how important our songs are during times of hardship and crisis: they give us hope, comfort, and happiness.
