In February 2021, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Desert Chorale offered its beloved community singing program Santa Fe Sings! virtually. Singers of all ages from New Mexico and beyond participated in weekly Zoom rehearsals, preparing three pieces under the guidance of Desert Chorale Artists and Steinway artist Jacquelyn Helin. The program culminated in a live Zoom performance, led by Desert Chorale Artistic Director Joshua Habermann, with the aid of this virtual performance by the Artists.
