Zoom calls are all the rage nowadays, as are events on Facebook Live and YouTube, but Seraphic Fire is taking a different approach. It is launching “Seraphic Saturday Podcasts,” starting at 8 a.m. May 2.
and calling the first one “Gamma ut.”
Seraphic Fire is a classical vocal ensemble based in South Florida, and the mission of its new podcast is to continue to connect with the audience. The podcasts will be presented on the Seraphic Fire blog on the first Saturday of each month and will also be available on the iTunes and Spotify apps.
