DECORAH, Iowa. (KWWL) - To aid in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, those at Luther College are taking their voices outdoors whenever possible.
Luther singers can be heard coming from the empty Decorah Municipal Pool.
Luther College is taking precautions when it comes to choral ensemble rehearsals during the fall 2020 semester.
For the five choirs (Nordic Choir, Collegiate Chorale, Cathedral Choir, Aurora and Norskkor) precautions include utilizing outdoor venues whenever possible, conductors and singers wearing face coverings at all times, the conductor wearing a personal amplification device to decrease the need to speak loudly and singers being spaced 7.5-12 feet in all directions.
This may result in some larger ensembles being split into smaller groups or sectionals for rehearsals.
