Description: Shir Joy Chorus of Massachusetts is excited to begin a new season on October 3. Weekly rehearsals are held Sunday evenings from 6:00pm-8:00pm at Congregation Bnai Shalom in Westborough. The first two rehearsals on October 3 and 10 will be open for all new and prospective members.

Rehearsals are currently planned to take place indoors with all singers masked. However, Covid safety may require singers to sing in an outdoor space, from their cars in the parking lot with wireless microphones or remotely on Zoom (as a last resort in inclement weather). Shir Joy successfully used all of these techniques throughout the pandemic last year, even maintaining its 2020-2021 concert schedule with virtual choir recordings and livestreaming.

Performances are currently planned for February 6 and June 26, 2022. These will be held live or with virtual chorus recordings (on Zoom) if necessary for the safety of chorus members and the audience.

Shir Joy Music Director Nan AK Gibbons is looking forward to the new season. Were prepared to adapt rehearsals and performances however we need to in order to keep singing. Covid protocols may direct how and where we sing, but not whether we sing.

Singers interested in joining the group are welcome to open rehearsals October 3 and 10. All current and prospective members will be required to provide proof of vaccination prior to attending any rehearsals. Masks will be required for all indoor rehearsals.
