Members of the Ball State University Chamber Choir

During the pandemic-restricted Fall 2020 semester, the Ball State University Chamber Choir—the flagship ensemble of a choral program that includes six curricular choirs—was broken into octets for this project. Masked and distanced, the student members of each group worked cooperatively to learn, shape, and record two hymns.
