Watch: This Land is Made for You and Me
During a time when the future of many singing-based groups is uncertain, the Wilmington Children’s Chorus (WCC) is paving the way forward for Delaware’s arts organizations. In late July, WCC gathered members of our Performing Choirs outdoors to sing together for the first time since March.\
These outdoor rehearsals looked vastly different from rehearsals pre-COVID. WCC gathered choristers in groups of 30 or less. Children were required to complete symptom screenings and had their temperature taken upon arrival. All choristers were kept 8 feet apart and the singers and staff wore masks at all times. The successful gatherings will serve as a model for our fall season.
Not only was this an opportunity to see each other in-person for the first time in four months, it was also an opportunity to honor the music of our spring season. While this isn’t how we planned to present “This Land is Made for You and Me,” we are still strong believers in its message.
One in 11 Delaware residents is an immigrant. We’re proud to present highlights from “This Land is Made for You and Me,” a musical celebration of Delaware’s five largest immigrant populations from Mexico, China, India, Guatemala, and the Philippines. WCC is proud to stand together with our friends and neighbors who call Delaware “home”!
Please enjoy highlights from what would have been our spring concert, titled “This Land is Made for You and Me.”
