    Adaptive Arts has always helped break down barriers to allow anyone to be able to learn and play music. Even in times of social distancing and isolation, they're continuing that mission through the use of technology. Teachers and students are able to remain in contact and even play together through their digital screens.

    With mandated quarantines affecting the way we function in the world, improvisation is the only way we can put our best foot forward during unprecedented times. At Plymouth High School, the show must go on, with the choir continuing to place auditions. However these auditions are all virtual. This gives the teacher and students the chance to change the dynamic of what auditions have to be.
