Charles West

Recent Performances

Whereas the VOSC committee verbally discussed and agreed that Charles’s recording of his March 17th Zoom VFSS feature performance would be a pilot project and for self viewing (as per conversations with Steve, Christina, Charles and Leona);   Whereas the March 17th recording was subsequently posted by Charles on the VFSS website through a link;   Whereas there is interest on the Board in discussing future recordings of feature performances;    Whereas there is also an interest in posting those recordings and an interest in developing criteria for choosing the first recordings to post and possible ways to post;   Whereas this March 17th feature performance posting was done too early because the VFSS Board has not yet had those discussions and has not yet made any decision to post such recordings on the VFSS website;   Whereas at this time, this is not about one recording of a feature performance or one post of that recording or link to that recording onto the VFSS website by a VFSS member, but rather it is about all such recordings and posts until such time as the Board has accepted a policy referencing these developments and plans   Be it resolved that Charles remove the link to the recording of his March 17th Zoom VFSS feature performance from the VFSS website.

Some thoughts on how it’s done.

The 15 min set is a post of the material I was working on when we all decided to stay home for a while.
