Tales of Zoom and WhatsApp

Back to the Summer Magazine

Cononley Art Group and Cononley Singers have both been busy despite the lockdown
Cononley Art Group’s medium of choice is WhatsApp. (This is a facility on smartphones that allows group discussion via text with the ability to share images, sounds – or even a live video link.) We are using this to good effect and are keeping in touch, viewing paintings, finding on line workshops, and discussing all that we have been doing while we’re detained at home.

Cononley Singers keep in touch via a Zoom link once a week. The time lag on any conferencing software like Zoom means that we can’t actually sing together online though many choirs as well as Gareth Malone’s Great British Home Chorus have shown, there’s a huge variety of exercises and rehearsal that is possible. We have a quiz each week and there’s time for greeting each other and catching up on any news.

Both groups are ready for action whenever the time comes for us to open up again.
