Missy sends out another tech SOS to Amy Burns who, as always, steps up in a big way to help Missy think through attempting a virtual performance with elementary students. They discuss the most basic approach to doing this for the entire school when they have very limited singing time and no in person assemblies as well as more sophisticated ways to put together this type of performance.
