I started out with low expectations. I’m not an online person. I decided to give it a go because after all I was only spending €40, and better to know than to pre-judge. Well, boy was I surprised. First session, I suddenly remembered the reason I joined Corus in the first place. It was simply for the singing, nothing else. The social factor came as a total bonus. So now it’s back to the singing again, the core. Sure it’s weird singing alone in my bedroom, but every aspect of life is weird at the moment, isn’t it? Given the choice between singing without the sociability, or no singing and no sociability, I’ll take the online singing. Sign me up till Covid is over! (And after that, too, of course!) MUKTA COOPER
