Concert postponed - Coronavirus
Roger Langford, with the enthusiastic backing of the whole choir, is planning on our next concert to celebrate the reactivation of the Choir with Rossini's Messe Solennelle and Beethoven's Mass in C.

Since the start of the Coronavirus about 20 to 30 members of the choir have been meeting on Zoom on Thursdays with Roger.  About a day before the rehearsals he sends an email to all giving the programme for the meeting along with the username and password for the Zoom rehearsal. 


Rehearsals using Zoom
Rehearsals take place on Zoom weekly on Thursdays at 6.30pm.  In the run up to Christmas we shall be rehearsing carols, and aim to have a virtual carol concert with a break for drinks on Thursday 17 December 2020.
