Among the many artistic endeavors lost to social distancing was the Oglethorpe University Singers‘ spring concert performance of Mozart’s Requiem.
But on the last day of in-person classes in March, the group agreed to try to come together creatively via video instead.
At home, each singer recorded themselves on their cell phones singing to a rehearsal track.
Dr. Timothy Powell, director of the University Singers, then edited the audio with Logic, a digital audio workstation, and singer Tess Curl ’21 edited the video portion.
“Our preparations for a performance of Mozart’s famous Requiem in D minor, K. 626 was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic. So, we overcame the adversity to perform some of it in virtual choir,” said Dr. Powell.
“It isn’t the same as singing together, but we hope it brightens your day.”
