Keep reading below to better understand what virtual My Pop Choir is all about!
My Pop Choir's virtual choir is a completely unique take on virtual choir programming. By utilizing post recording audio software, My Pop Choir's virtual choir includes built in harmonies, so when you sing along to the music, it feels like you are actually singing in a real choir! The only technology required is a computer and access to the internet. Scroll below for further details on what to expect with our Virtual Term.
Having led many a school choir over the years, I fully appreciate the prep that goes into an effective and satisfying rehearsal. Alex knows the music so well that he anticipates tricky areas and goes over them ... even when he can’t hear us!
I will confess to looking over my shoulder the first time, half expecting to see him standing right there - and I laughed every time it happened again!! So know that you will learn each song and enjoy your success.
Alex does it all, and leaves us smiling, looking forward to the next week of My Pop Choir!
My Pop Choir's main component is our Monday evening choir sessions. The sessions use both Zoom and YouTube for a fully integrated choral experience. Here is the breakdown of a typical choir session:
At 6:30PM (EST), a Zoom meeting begins for casual socializing. You can meet and chat with your fellow members, join a breakout room, observe in the background, or skip this section of the evening.
At 7:00PM (EST), the choir session officially begins with an overview of the term's upcoming projects & events, a vocal warmup, and an opportunity to ask questions regarding current material.
At 7:30PM (EST), the session continues with an hour long YouTube Premiere Video. These videos have built in harmonies, so it feels just like a real choir session. While you sing, you will hear how your voice sounds with the other harmonies. By using YouTube Premiere Video, members are able to comment in real time. This gives members the ability to ask questions and connect with each other virtually.
All My Pop Choir Members will have access to our Members Only Page.
Here's what you can access:
The Vocal Recordings
The Sheet Music
An 'All Vocals' MP3 recording of all parts sung together
Throughout the year, we perform at various events throughout the GTA. It is completely optional and does not interfere directly with choir sessions. We've performed countless times at the ROM, Royal Botanical Gardens, Breakfast Television, and much much more! If you live in the area you should come join us!
Want to sing in a choral music video? Each term we put together a music video which will showcase one of our songs of the term. It's always a huge hit! See our Performances Page for past music videos.
All My Pop Choir Members will have access to our Online Voice Workshops through the duration of the choir term.
Workshops cover various topics from practical approaches on improving the health and quality of your singing voice to in depth analysis of vocal anatomy and breathing techniques.
