Tim Seelig is the artistic director for the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus.

He joined ABC7 News Wednesday, explaining how the choir has been “rehearsing” for their big Christmas Eve performance.

“Rehearsals have been terrible,” Seelig says, in that they have so far been “nonexistent.”

That’s because, Seelig explains, it isn’t possible for everyone to sing at once together on Zoom.

In fact, he says there is actually “no platform that allows for people to sing, and me to hear it.”
