Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

How can I keep from singing?

During the restrictions of COVID-19 we have been having our TSOChorus rehearsals via Zoom, which has at least allowed us to keep working together as a group even though it is less than ideal for group musical activity. However, with Tasmania having closed its borders and dealt with outbreaks, we have been able to get together in small groups, and are now working towards bigger gatherings … but these need larger spaces than our usual rehearsal venue in order to maintain appropriate distancing. We have thus been starting to rehearse in half-choir-sized groups in venues such as City Hall and the rather spartan and chilly—but acoustically very satisfying—building known as the Goods Shed.

The Goods Shed is just a barn of a tin shed, and so beanies, gloves and puffer jackets are definitely de rigeur some nights … but it is oh-so-good to be singing together, and we are very aware of how fortunate we are to be able to be doing this (and very aware that our opportunity to do this may not last if the virus reappears, given that elsewhere some choirs have had bad experiences with spreading the virus during rehearsals).
