COVID-19

I’m sure it came as no surprise to our supporters that due to the COVID-19 situation and all public gatherings subjected to either cancellation or postpone that our concert, originally scheduled for Saturday 28th March has been rescheduled to Saturday 10th October.

Those of you who purchased tickets are entitled to a full refund OR we can carry them over to our rescheduled concert in October.

Undaunted, we shared between ourselves some historical YouTube performances of the works from our concert programme so that choir members could all experience the music in performance, and we’re looking forward to October!

The news thus far is rather sombre in that this lock down period could continue for some time.

We are keeping a watchful eye on developments as they occur but we currently foresee no choir practices taking place until the Autumn term.
