For a good year now, First Parish church services have come to you via Zoom, YouTube, or Facebook. The music—played by Rip Jackson and other instrumentalists, sung by the choir, the children’s choir, and various soloists—has continued to be a vital part of church. But have you ever wondered how everyone involved has managed to sing or play together when we’ve all been spread out—Rip’s in Florida, Amy’s in DC, Paul’s in South Carolina, Mary’s in Vermont—and basically stuck inside for months on end? Chris Hess, the audio and video wizard behind the music, will describe how this particular bit of sausage is made in the weeks before a piece is part of a service.
