UPDATE FROM THE OFFICE OF CHORAL ACTIVITIES
IN REGARD TO COVID-19 AND PROCEDURES FOR FALL 2020
August 18, 2020
Greetings from the Office of Choral Activities at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). I write to each of you today to update you on plans for students participating in Ole Miss Choirs this fall. During these very uncertain times, it has been quite a challenge to deviate from our traditional choral offerings and teaching methods to a totally new approach. But, we have quickly grasped the necessity and need for creating safe and new methods for presenting a meaningful choral experience. While Dr. Elizabeth Hearn and I are not scientists, we have participated regularly in information sharing, reading of articles and attending zoom sessions to obtain the latest information on the best and safest ways to operate choir this fall.
We want to assure all parents and guardians of students enrolled in choir at Ole Miss that we want you to feel comfortable with your decision as to the level of participation your daughter/son will be involved in this fall. Please click the link below to review the specifics on our planned “hybrid” approach to how we will deliver choir.
We are dedicated to a great Fall semester!
