Quarentena Coral

The Quarentena Coral (Quarantine Choir) is a project designed to serve corporate choirs and community choirs in a 100% virtual format. Leading this initiative, Miriã Valeriano and Filipe de Matos Rocha provide a diverse musical experience with objectives that go beyond simply maintaining choral singing during the pandemic. These objectives include: 1. stimulating collaborative work and team engagement during remote work periods; and 2. developing crucial artistic and musical skills to foster creativity among participants during this delicate period of reinventing normalcy in history.

Virtual Rehearsals

This is the initial phase of the process, lasting approximately 4 to 5 weeks. Each vocal section has its specific rehearsal where the repertoire is taught in sections. These videos are made available weekly, and choir members can watch them at their convenience.

Below is Rehearsal #04 of the 4th season as an example. To access the complete seasons, please find the playlist links below:

Video Kits

 

This is the second phase where the seasons are composed. To simulate in-person rehearsals, the video kits aim to serve as a reference for the production of virtual choir videos and also to stimulate the development of harmonic ear training, confidence, and independence among the singers.

 

In total, there are 8 video kits:

Grup I - sopranos,

Grup II - altos,

Grup III - baritones

Demonstration - with all voices

Play-back - instrumental only

Grup I and II

Grup I and III

Grup II and III

Music Videos

 

These are the mosaic-style virtual choir videos that serve as the final result of each season. The arrangements are mostly contemporary and created during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. The process has been entirely virtual since March 2020.

With the available equipment (cell phones, tablets, and computers), the choristers from the 4 groups we work with (Coral CEDAE, Gente Que Canta, Segure Sua Nota - CNSeg, and Vozes da Globo - Jardim Botânico) rehearse and send their audio and video recordings to compose the final music video.

List:

- 1st Season: "Águas de Março" (Tom Jobim)
- 2nd Season: "Todas as Janelas" (Rogério Flausino)
- 3rd Season: "Por Enquanto" (Renato Russo)
- 4th Season: "Arranjei um Fraseado" (Noel Rosa)
- EXTRA: "O Show tem que Continuar" (Arlindo Cruz)
- 5th Season: "Heal the World" (Michael Jackson)

Lives​

 

These are moments of very important exchanges.

In the first live event, conductors Eduardo Lakschevitz and Júlio Moretzsohn interview Filipe de Matos Rocha, a graduate of UNIRIO, about his experience leading choirs during times of social isolation: How did he perceive the change? How is he coping? What solutions has he found? What are his perspectives?

In the second event, Pluggin invited psychologist Patrícia Soares to discuss how music can help keep teams united and mentally healthy during remote work and social distancing.
