Virtual Choir Information

Here's what we need to do to try a virtual choir.  You, at home, need to have access to 2 devices - a phone and a computer works perfectly. Consider using the computer to play the accompaniment - you will be listening to the accompaniment through ear phones or ear plugs.  The phone can the be used to record the video. Below you will see the accompaniment for 2 songs.  Nancy was nice enough to also record the parts of the one we've not yet sung so you can practice and hear your individual parts.  When you are ready to record, be sure to use the accompaniment, not the individual part.  

  1. Start recording yourself before you begin playing the accompaniment.    

  2. Count down with the computer 3,2,1, Go!  This gives us the ability to easily get the synchronization close. Watch Hanna as she the directs on the accompaniment for starting and cut off. 

  3. If you are using the phone, please use the horizontal orientation.  It helps if we are all in the same orientation.  If you are recording on a video, the view is often horizontal to begin with.

  4. Try to stay in the video frame during the singing.  

  5. Leave at least 5 seconds at the end once the singing and piano have ended. .  Smile and count to 5 slowly. That ensure that I have space at the end to ensure we are all off video together.

 

When you are done, either share your file on google drive or idrive or dropbox to skfulton@gmail.com  (For those that need assistance with this part, call Steve and he'll walk you through it)  Make sure you title the file with the name of the song you are singing.  What you will be submitting to me should be a video with just you singing.  I do not want the accompaniment with that.  We will add that later. 

 

Don't panic or be worried if you don't think you sound good.  Once all the voices have blended in, we will sound as good as we do each Sunday!

 

If you have questions, call Steve at 719 487 8979.  He's happy to talk you through it!
