A Cappella Thrives in the Time of Covid-19 and Physical Distance-Sing (Updated August 2, 2020)
To help keep our hearts full of spring, our groups have been making the most of quarantine and technology producing some remarkable recordings. Rest assured these arrangements represent hours of work and patience to produce.
The New Wizard Oil Combination was first online with “Stickshifts and Safety Belts” masterminded by the group’s Mark Klenk. While back in Detroit, Tony Alcantara was close behind, rallying the Grunyons for a remarkable remote rendition of their arrangement of “When I’m Sixty Four,” a possible tribute to next year’s Spring Sing, or to the average age of the group, which makes the accomplishment even more encouraging. Jersey Transit entered the scene shortly thereafter with their arrangement of “True Colors.”
Documentation is in process and we will share more of the production backstory soon along with some guidance on producing your own contribution; but for now, just enjoy some inspiring music and creativity in these uncertain times.
