SPRING 2020: Virtual Concert
Our second online effort was this virtual performance of Irish Blessing. Our spring 2020 season may not have been traditional, but it was equally filled with music, warmth, and connection.
In dedication to all those working during the COVID-19 crisis
When we were forced to cancel our spring 2020 concert due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we took our efforts to the virtual stage and released our first online performance: Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water"
We used this opportunity to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts, and redirected all donations made to the chorus during the month of May to the Boston Resiliency Fund, which provides food for children and seniors, technology for remote learning for students, and support to first responders and healthcare workers in the City of Boston. We raised $600!
