The COVID-19 pandemic has unfortunately kept audiences out of Dowd Fine Arts Center Theatre for the past year.

So SUNY Cortland’s performing arts students and faculty decided to bring the show to you.

“Raise Your Voice: A Call to Social Change,” a musical and prose revue conceived and created by associate professor Kevin Halpin and visiting assistant professor Jacob Carll, launched on YouTube on March 27.

One dozen student performers starting filming segments for the production on the Dowd Fine Arts Center Theatre stage in early March. “Raise Your Voice” is divided into sections that focus on topics such as love, women’s empowerment and racial justice.

The production was compliant with COVID-19 safety protocols, with performers wearing face coverings and choreography being done with physical distancing in mind.

For more information on the student performers and the works included, a playbill is available online.

Students JoDee Hall, Dominic Green and Annie Ross also appeared on “Bridge Street” on WSYR-TV to talk about “Raise Your Voice” on March 22.
