WE ARE GOING LIVE
We can’t wait to resume live rehearsals, with all the pleasure they bring to our community… hearing each other harmonize as a large group, smiling across the room at one another, meeting new singers in person. However, as we all know, these are times that call for a new normal. Please read the details below and consider your own health and safety as you make your own decision regarding singing live this fall.
IT WILL BE A HYBRID SEASON
Each rehearsal will be broadcast and recorded. We haven’t identified the broadcast technology yet but will post it on our website. Videos will be posted on the website a few days after each rehearsal, so singers can continue to learn the music and hear announcements even after an absence.
At sign-up, singers will opt to join for live rehearsals (tuition $105) or participate virtually (tuition $85). We are extending the final refund date by an additional week to give singers more time to decide if the new model works for them.
Live singers will be asked to attend as many rehearsals as possible in person throughout the season. However, if singers need to miss a rehearsal, virtual rehearsals and Sectional rehearsals will count toward Mystic’s attendance requirement. Any singers who miss three or more live rehearsals will need to audition with Nick to be cleared to sing in concert. This audition will be conducted privately over Zoom and is meant to assure Nick that the singer knows the music well enough to fully participate.
Virtual singers who are fully vaccinated may be invited to join the chorus in person at the end of the concerts for a finale or EVERY DAY IS A DAY OF THANKSGIVING, if space permits.
Mystic Chorale is committed to complying with all of the recommendations of the CDC as well as MA government regulations. As we plan our fall season during these unprecedented times, we are consulting with experts on choral singing. We will adapt our plans, as needed, as conditions and recommendations change over the coming months. Our major concern is the SAFETY AND HEALTH of our community. All of us will participate at our own risk, but Mystic Chorale will provide the following precautions…
CONCERTS WILL LOOK DIFFERENT
We are still firming up our concert date and venue. Watch for information on our website. We hope to sing to a live audience, but that can only be determined, based on safety issues related to Covid, in the coming months.
A FINAL NOTE
As a Board we are doing all we can to ensure a safe fall for all of us in the Mystic community. We are monitoring variants of the virus, infection rates in Eastern Massachusetts, booster shot recommendations, how other singing groups that are rehearsing this summer fare, how audiences attending live concerts fare, and other relevant news.
For ongoing updates about the fall season, please check this page on our website regularly
We will also stay in touch with the Mystic community via email, at sign-up, and via News and Notes once the season is launched.
Fall season sign-up will begin on August 9.

Looking forward to an exciting fall!
