Earlier this fall, Westside Voices presented an outdoor concert entitled "Travel Safely Through Music." Even face shields and social distancing couldn't keep this unique mixed a-cappella ensemble from visiting New York, Jamaica, San Francisco, Paris, and London.
The audience smiled from beneath their face masks, and participated in the hum-a-longs. Chairs were spaced for family members and individuals, and recommended safety protocols were followed.
Singing outdoors without amplification was a challenge. Wearing face coverings and not being able to stand close together made it even more difficult, but the singers were able to adapt to the acoustics of the space. Seating was limited, so that all could comfortably enjoy the music.
This was the first time that some of the audience had left their homes, except for visits to the supermarket or to the doctor. It was a joy to bring a sense of normalcy to the community.
Come celebrate the holidays with Westside Voices at our up-coming concert on December 20. Enjoy great live music and a few surprises.
