Greetings, heroic educators!
I am a conductor hoping to start a chorus that will focus on works by wonderful but often-neglected composers, so I thought some fellow music teachers might be interested. If you like to sing and are up for a challenge, I'd love to have you!

Anyone got any good music teacher memes?

OK, so how complicated is it to do a virtual ensemble? How “techie” do the kids and I need to be? All suggestions welcomed. Thanks.
