Due to the pandemic, established choir groups have switched to online delivery methods in accordance with public health guidelines on group gatherings.

Researchers have recently begun to examine the feasibility and benefits to wellbeing of virtual choirs but there are minimal studies, and the results are mixed. One major downfall to virtual choir signing appears to be the lack of synchronicity of the members due to high internet latency. The proposed study will involve the exploration of the feasibility of virtual choir singing using low-latency technology and its potential to support social wellbeing in older adults.
