The Social Side of Superchoir Online
The benefits of Superchoir being in an online space is that members have the opportunity to make friends with other members from across the world, as geography is no longer a limiting factor.
We created Superchoir Online to provide a positive weekly boost. This was especially important while people across the world were limited in their social interactions. This was brilliant for maintaining that energy boost that our physical sessions provided. However, prospective Superchoir members may be concerned about how online choir sessions take away the social side of being in the choir. This is an understandable concern given that due to internet speeds we must remain muted throughout sessions.
We’re here to reassure you that the social side is still very active and fun! In fact, the benefits of Superchoir being in an online space is that members have the opportunity to make friends with other members from across the world, as geography is no longer a limiting factor.
Here are the three main catalysts for the social side of Superchoir Online. This is not an exhaustive list though, there are many other ways to socialise with other members!
The Zoom chat
Despite Superchoirers remaining muted throughout the online choir rehearsal, there’s still flowing conversation. In fact, our amazing members often fill the chat with comments from members having a general catch up with each other, making amusing jokes, as well as asking questions about the music.
The tech support’s main role is to provide assistance to anyone struggling with accessing the lyrics or having issues on Zoom. Despite this, they often join in with the fun conversations with the chat box as well. Sometimes they even start silly conversations about the weather. The chat box is a great way for members to get to know each other.
The closed Facebook group
This group is mainly for sharing details about upcoming events or online choir rehearsals However, it also provides opportunities for members to socialise with each other! Be it posting about upcoming socials or particular arrangements that they are excited by, this group gives our fabulous members the opportunity to get to know each other and socialise away from sessions!
Now for the major means of socialisation: socials themselves! Held at least once a quarter, these involve learning snippets of new arrangements, as well as fun team games that mean members can get to know each other better! They are amazing opportunities to let go and for our Superchoirers to express themselves through their outfits, virtual backgrounds or conversations!
They also provide the opportunity for shyer members to come out of their shell and open up. This could mean they have an added enthusiasm towards sessions!
If you have been wanting to join an online choir, now’s your opportunity to get involved with us! With plenty of opportunities to socialise with your fellow virtual choir members, there’s nothing to lose!
