The Igloo Choir, which was set up 10 years ago by singer and songwriter Dielle Hannah, has adapted to the challenges of the pandemic and its members have helped each other continue producing music throughout this ‘frightening’ period.
Dielle, from Wickham, said: ‘I’m a musician, my life has been completely shut down so it’s been really good for us to log on and see some familiar faces, have a laugh and sing together, and it makes you feel better about the world.’
The choir, with members aged between mid-30s and 80, used Zoom to rehearse, compose new songs and produce music videos by using green screens.
