Adapting to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and thus the inability to rehearse music in person, I’m collaborating with the California-based male vocal ensemble, Men in Blaque, to explore the application Jamkazam: an online platform made for real-time rehearsing and recording.
Alongside director Joseph Huszti — Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Irvine — we set a goal to prepare two selections recorded in real-time accompanied by a video presentation by November 2020. We prepared an arrangement by Ben Johns of the traditional folk song, “Red Rose” and an “Alleluia” canon by William Boyce.
I am located in Chicago for this project while the rest of the singers are scattered across California.
