Welcome to the Barbershop Harmony Society Music Medics Program. We are thrilled you are interested in hosting this program in your local community. Briefly, Music Medics is all about sending at least a quartet-size ensemble to sing exclusively at children’s hospitals in your local area on a monthly or semi-monthly basis.
MCC Announces Return to In-Person Rehearsals!
On September 14th, the Music City Chorus was thrilled to join together in our new home for rehearsals at Nashville School of the Arts. At the MCC Board meeting on August 31, it was decided that we would have in-person rehearsals with precautions due to the continuing pandemic, including possible vaccination requirements, masks, and distancing.
The metrics that we are going to be using for now to determine whether proof of vaccination will be required from one week to the next are related to the goal of lifting the proof requirement in weeks when people being tested for Covid-19 are as negative as possible, and also on weeks that, should the unthinkable happen and an outbreak occurs, that there are sufficient hospital resources that affected members would be able to receive treatment. With regard to test positivity, we'll be shooting for 10% or lower positivity in Davidson County. With regard to hospital resources, we'll be aiming for 80% or lower ICU usage.
Masks are required at the school, so we as a chorus will wear them. There are singer's masks and others that work well, but the best advice would be to get it in advance and practice at home to see if it stands the test for your comfort. There will also be a thermometer at the door for temps to be taken upon arrival.
If you would like to provide your proof of vaccination in advance, you can submit a picture of your vaccine card to this form. The Chapter President and VP of Membership are the only two with access to this, so please know that that isn't going to be used for anything else. You are also welcome to show your card at the door.
We will continue to provide an online experience for members and guests alike that want to see how things are progressing in-person. You can register to get the meeting link at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMuc-2orzsjHNegAMNAyIpOf2CfdF1z7LBt.
