COVID-19 suspension of all choir activities

COVID-19: Rehearsals are suspended until further notice.
For further information about the virus, keep an eye on this government website:

It is with regret that, after serious deliberation the committee decided to suspend choir rehearsals until further notice. There will be no rehearsal this coming Tuesday 24th March and thereafter. 

This decision will certainly disappoint those of us who regard choir as the highlight of our week and who appreciate how it contributes to our health and well-being. Please be aware withdrawal of such a key activity from an older age group can have well-documented negative health effects and so stay connected and be responsive to the choir ‘family’ during these anxious times.

Collection of Scores: There has been a decision not to collect the Bach St Matthew Passion scores at his time, but if you have already made arrangements to return your score that is fine.

Although this suspension of choir activities looks like an extended break we hope and pray it will be sooner rather than later that we can reconvene. Returning to normal choir activities will be announced on this website and directly to members by email.

Look after yourselves, take care.
