Rock Voices: Distant Voices Tour 2020
Tee Shirt Now Available!
Beyond the singing, we wanted to produce a special, commemorative t-shirt, so we asked members to submit their ideas for a slogan that summed up this strange spring. Finalists were selected, and a choir-wide vote determined the winning slogan: Rock Voices – Distant Voices Tour. (Special thanks to Rock Voices Keene, NH members Emily Mason and Cricket VanAlstyne, who came up with the winning slogan.)
A few weeks ago we announced our Rock Voices “Distant Voices Tour 2020” t-shirt or sweatshirt, featuring the names of all hometowns of our spring 2020 season members. Good news: it’s not too late to order one, as they will be available through the end of August.
But then we ran into a bit of trouble: Bonfire, the shirt distributor, discovered that the very smallest town names on the original shirt design do not print legibly. We received a test shirt, and decided that it still looks great! This is the original design:
If you’re not ok with some of the towns not being visible (specifically, your home town), then you may want to order our new “redesign” instead:
Already ordered a shirt and want to change it to the new design?
Just cancel your existing order, mentioning that you are going to instead purchase the redesign.
A note about the design
The heart on this shirt is made up of the names of all our Rock Voices choir locations, as well as the hometowns of every single choir member in every single choir (based on our Spring 2020 season enrollment). So wear your RV heart outwardly, and know that you are not alone. You are part of a musical family that not even a pandemic can break apart.
Ironically, the release of this shirt has been delayed this long for the same reason we decided to make the shirt in the first place: COVID-19. Many of the online t-shirt companies halted their production & fulfillment of shirts due to the virus, and even though our design was ready to go back in April we’ve been unable to find a distributor until now.
This shirt is only available for purchase during the month of August. We will be releasing additional Rock Voices branded merchandise soon, but for now this is the only item we are selling, and it is only available through the link below. 100% of proceeds from the sale of this shirt will go towards the operating costs of Rock Voices. Thanks for your support!
