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.
The bad news: Everyone is so busy that we did not get enough submissions to host a meaningful session on August 13, so we canceled this virtual event.
To those who did create videos, your efforts are appreciated, and we are glad to share them with the membership!
Have some fun and get your body moving with this Physical Warmup submitted by Evergreen Chorus.

Led by Kathy Sylvester, Baritone Section Leader & Coordinator for Physical Warmups
This is a good low impact physical warm-up providing movement for the entire body.

Vocal Warmup using “When the Saints Go Marching In”
Submitted by Liberty Oak Chorus
Led by Katie Blackwood, Master Director
This warmup highlights each vocal part. Good for introducing guests to four-part singing. Parts are easy to pick up and allows guests to try different vocal ranges before being voiced placed.
Thank you to Evergreen and Liberty Oak!
