Monique Fontaine and her neighbors, who live in Dormont, PA, decided to turn a difficult situation into a positive communal experience. After being quarantined for several days, Monique, who usually spends her days working in the Fiscal Department in Coraopolis, joined her neighbors outside of their homes, and began singing in celebration of each other. They soon realized that this small action helped to bring joy around the neighborhood. It didn’t take long for them to brand themselves as the “CoronaChoir” as they sang well known songs including “Can You Hear the People Sing?” from Les Misérables and “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” from Mister Rogers Neighborhood.
ABC World News Tonight and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette heard about this remarkable act of togetherness and the CoronaChoir was featured both on TV and online. Thank you, Monique, for giving us the opportunity to see how a small town can make a huge impact. Click here to listen to the audio file
