This online comparative study was attended by more than 100 participants from both Unpad Choir and UIN Jakarta Choir. Due to the pandemic that causes limitations, this comparative study was held online, using Google Meet as the platform.

This activity began with opening speech from head of Unpad Choir, Raihan Tsany Kurnia, which was followed by opening speech from head of UIN Jakarta Choir, Raza Aqil Maulana, along with speeches  from the conductor, Julian Pranata, and conductor assistant, Dewangga Aji. This was followed by a material presentation, carried out by the chairman, vice chairman, and manager of each division.

In this session, each division manager explained about the job description that must be undertaken. Then, this was followed by the opportunity to ask questions related to the presentation. The session was divided into two terms, which were followed enthusiastically by questioners from UIN Jakarta Choir. Questioners mainly were asking about the organization structure, also activities in Unpad Choir, such as new member recruitment and vocal lessons.

After this question and answer session was over, there was a virtual collaboration video screening between Unpad Choir and UIN Jakarta Choir, which performed a song called Bolelebo. All participants welcomed this collaboration video with great fanfare.
