Singing in choral mode typically a healthy, joyous, and community-affirming activity is now a high-risk one for spreading the coronavirus. So choruses like GMCW with its 300 participants, are facing very significant challenges, as are performing arts groups across the region and the country: it will likely be among the last to return full-tilt. In the meantime, it is exploring options to continue its mission-based performances via smaller ensembles that protect the safety and well-being of members and audiences but keep the music alive. GMCW has also increased its virtual footprint, including brand new videos and quality online offerings like the streaming release of its March 2019 concert, Let Freedom Sing, a celebration of the Black and African American influence on music. This is a tough time for those who participate in and benefit from the arts. Let's keep them alive.
