We were very lucky during a few months of 2020 to be able to meet to rehearse, even if the timing of lockdowns meant we couldn't perform.
While singing 2 metres away from anyone else isn't for everyone, we found that it was a great way to concentrate the mind and build our confidence in our abilities as stand-alone singers (literally). We managed to live-stream rehearsals on Facebook for those members who couldn't join us in person, ensuring that everyone in the choir felt included during this strange time. We are now back in lockdown and rehearsing via the inadequate medium of various platforms that don't allow for harmonised singing! However, it's good to see everyone's faces and discover new repertoire.
Very sadly we've had to cancel our concert in June, but we'll be meeting again before the summer break to audition our future Musical Director and enjoy some congenial company and music. Live music has never been more important to people than now!
