Creating and Promoting Virtual Choirs
with Jacob Gobrogge
Wednesday, July 1 at 10:00am (EDT)
With COVID threatening to shut down our concerts and maybe reduce the hours of class time, how do we keep students performing? During this session, we will discuss how you can assemble a virtual choir performance using Adobe Premiere Pro and virtual platforms like Facebook Live and YouTube Live, and also how you try to engage your students to participate. We will also briefly discuss licensing information, and the lessons learned from putting together a virtual concert.
Check back soon for a full video of this session. Conference recordings may take up to 7-10 days to fully process and publish.
