Virtual encounters between singers and students during lockdown
The new initiative by the Hungarian State Opera invited students who were to stay at home during the closure of schools from 16 March 2020 to take part in a game organised to encourage daily singing. Every morning, a different opera singers recorded an easy-to-learn Hungarian folk song on video, which were posted on the community sites of the Opera. Students, in return, were encouraged to record themselves singing the current daily song and send the video to the Opera. The following day, a winner was chosen and announced, their video was posted on YouTube.
