Recently, Tone Cluster-quite a queer choir elected a new Board of Directors with an exciting yet challenging road ahead of them. How do you keep the choir and its audience engaged during a pandemic?
The Board set to work establishing various choir committees with mandates such as COVID-19 strategic planning, external communications committee, social engagement, bylaw review, and an Artistic Director (Virtual) Search committee. The Board and the committees have been meeting regularly since the Spring.
The choir’s social media feeds have been kept alive with favourite choir video links, local artist links, singing tips, and trivia.
All this activity goes to show that not even a pandemic can stop Tone Cluster-quite a queer choir. An AGM will close out the season with a virtual 27th season in the works for this Fall.
The 2020/2021 Board:
President: Robert Bowman
Vice-President: Keith Duncanson
Treasurer: Susan Farley
Secretary: Roger Butt
Member at Large: Colum Grove-White
