Oklahoma City -

After a difficult year in 2020, the OK City chorus is hoping for a better 2021 as it continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We wanted to find something that expressed the hope that we have for 2021," said Nancy Nortz, the events coordinator with OK City Chorus.

OK City Chorus combines over 70 women's voices, but putting together this virtual chorus was not an easy task.

"This project was an interesting thing. We learned a new song to do during the pandemic. It is something we have never sung together or never heard before," said Nortz.

Each woman sent in an audio and visual recording to be combined into one symphony.

The pandemic has taken a toll on the group, from practicing every Tuesday now to meeting online.

"We mute ourselves and sing along with a track," said Nortz. "We share stories that are going on in our lives. We do research projects."

But virtually, singing has its limits, so they are hoping to get back together soon.

"We have purchased special COVID-19 singers mask," said Nortz. "With enough spacing, we are hoping soon we will be able to begin practicing in small groups."
