My Favorite Warmup Videos

August 15, 2021 - 6:15pm -- Victoria Tisch
The Region 15 Management Team had planned a virtual event on Friday, August 13 featuring "My Favorite Warmups and Vocal Wellness," which was to be crowd-sourced with videos from around the region. As announced in our all-member email on August 8, there was some good news and some bad news...
 
The good news: Many of our choruses have been taking advantage of the warmer weather and vaccination status to meet (safely!) for singing in-person over the past couple of months, and many members have been increasing their social activities and vacation plans.
