Essex Virtual Choir
Wed 29 July – Wed 23 Sept 2020 Weekly Zoom sessions: 7.00pm
CHOIR LEADER: Frances M Lynch (evt’s Artistic Director)
Come and join in – you don’t have to be able to sing!!!! WE WON’T HEAR YOU!!!
This is for everyone, and especially for families to sing together. We’ll celebrate the wonderful scientific women of Essex in song.
Sessions open 15 minutes before the start time (so at 6.45pm) – when you are welcome to arrive for a chat with Frances or you can stay afterwards and chat for real or leave questions in the CHAT during the session.
We start the session at 7pm – all you will need is yourself (and the rest of your family/friends!), your microphone MUST BE muted ALL THE TIME unless Frances indicates otherwise – and then only unmute it if you wish to (she won’t make you!). It’s up to you if you want your camera on – though it does help Frances to help you if she can see you – but please don’t feel obliged – she won’t be offended.
We will be singing about the Women of Essex during the project – so – if you would like to have a look at our first important lady of Essex – Margaret Cavendish – you will find out about her here https://minervascientifica.co.uk/margaret-cavendish/ – don’t worry if you don’t have time, but you might want to catch up on her afterwards!
Music has been created especially for this project with British female composers and you will help to shape some it too – so it’s a chance to take part in something exciting and unique. Booking Details
You’ll find resources below to help you learn the music between the sessions or if you want to catch up so you can join us later on in the series.

“We are Essex Virtual Choir,
We are all fantastic
You can’t hear us singing
But we’re doing voice gymnastics
Oh yes we are
Though our mics are muted
Oh yes we are
It cannot be disputed
