How it works

• Singers sign up to take part in the project. Participation is $100 (includes scores, guidetracks, and online sessions).

• Upon registration singers will receive a link to a Dropbox folder where all the material will be found.
As we will also use Dropbox for you to upload your recordings we encourage you to sign up for a free account and to install the Dropbox application on your computer.

• Singers receive their toolkit to help learn their part. The material will be available as of February 5.

• The material includes: scores, practice tracks, a guidetrack for the final recording, specific guidelines for the recording.

• Singers attend a 60-minute online project orientation and introduction to the pieces on February 9 at 7:00 p.m.

• Singers prepare their parts and attend regular “rehearsals” for the opportunity to dive into the pieces, hear demonstrations, meet the other singers involved, etc.

• Singers create and send in/upload audio and video recordings of their part.

• Post-production audio and video work will be done by the artistic team.

• Singers are invited to attend a preview performance prior to the world premiere in mid to late June.
