Zoom rehearsals have been a bright spot for Somerset Hills Harmony as our members enjoy time together working on skills, learning new songs and making new friends.  All the while, there was still the void of close harmony - blending your voice with others in real time and in real company.  The SHH leadership came across a novel solution for singing together during the novel coronavirus - the drive in rehearsal.  SHH's "Hot Rods and Harmony" went through a few iterations and led to a new dawn for singing together this past August.  A steady diet of drive in rehearsals wtih Zoom rehearsals in between is just what the chorus doctor ordered.  And now the SHH leadership is sharing their story and lessons learned with choruses nationwide.  They are joined in their webinar series by Bryce Denney of Massachusetts, who brought the drive in rehearsal concept to the world through social media.

Tori Cook of Chorus Connections penned a fantastic article about the drive in rehearsal, including great comments about SHH's approach.  It's a great read, and don't be shy contacting SHH leadership to learn more (including to attend a free webinar).
