Heart of Columbia is ready for Region 14's 2022 Virtual Competition
As a result of the COVID Pandemic, Sweet Adelines across all regions cancelled competitions in 2020 and 2021. With the decline in infections, Sweet Adeline choruses in Region 14 will be competing virtually on April 9, 2022.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person rehearsals were cancelled. Choruses utilized Zoom for virtual rehearsals and created recordings of chorus members singing individually at home. Those recordings were captured and edited into a virtual chorus performance. As the number of infections decreased, choruses returned to in-person rehearsal, with members distanced 6' apart. Just when things were returning to normal, the Delta variant spread and the rate of infections caused a return to outdoor rehearsals.
