The Covid crisis has hit choirs and musical groups globally.
As founders deeply involved in the world of choirs and community singing, we’ve experienced first-hand the frustration and sadness that comes with not being able to connect musically with our members.
We are building Flock to solve this problem.
Synchronized online singing is a breakthrough technology. We believe it will become an essential tool in every choir leader’s toolbox – bringing greater convenience and inclusiveness to singers around the world.
