Seattle Song Circle is flourishing during COVID-19.  We started video conferencing in February 2020, and moved from a dozen people singing together in person to 3 times that from all over.  By the end of July, participants came in from Alaska to Maryland, from Australia to UK and Denmark.  And the weekly sing extended past 11 PDT.  The Seattle Song Circle is meeting 7PM Sundays via Zoom Conferencing, at this link: https://zoom.us/j/358495231 .
