University of Minnesota Chamber Singers: Into the COVID Era

In April 2020, Kathy Saltzman Romey and members of the University of Minnesota’s Chamber Singers (the ensemble’s 2018 recordings also appear in this Showcase) carried this repertoire into the COVID Era, with remote recordings of Mozart’s OPORTO and Mendelssohn’s LADE. These are musical testaments to a world of social distance, but breathe an air of startling intimacy.
