What’s a COVID-Times Hobby or Skill You’ve Picked Up? Stamp Collecting

What Keeps You Connected to the Ars Nova Repertoire? I sang with Ars Nova for 8 years when they first started. I appreciated, as a vocalist, singing challenging, beautiful music of both the Renaissance and Avant-Garde. The music “sticks” to your soul. When I was no longer able to sing with Ars Nova, I continued to follow them and enjoy their beautiful music.
