Six Appeal’s Jordan Roll, Accent’s Evan Sanders, and Northern Blend Chorus’ Katie Taylor join us to talk about how to keep rehearsal momentum going when you can’t get together – and why maybe there are other ways to think about the role of rehearsals.
Accent is a group with members from France, Sweden, Canada, UK, and the US – so they’re no strangers to remote rehearsal. Pro group Six Appeal brought on two new members from other parts of the country and met in person for the first time only days before a Disney Cruise gig. Northern Blend brings together over three-dozen women from around a region who balance singing with regular daily lives. Each group has a different perspective on remote rehearsals, and how they’re each keeping their communities strong when they can’t get together. We talk about it all on this episode of Polyphony!
