Concert postponed - Coronavirus
Roger, 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 met on Zoom with Roger directing and taking us through Mozart's Requiem and Handel's Messiah.  He has also given interesting sessions on reading music raw with no accompaniment beyond the home note, and also a session on rhythm.

The next Zoom sessions
Thursday 16 July, starting at 6.00 pm and finishing at 7 pm. Last Thursday we went through The Dark Eyed Sailor by Vaughan Williams.

The Dark Eyed Sailor - midi:

Roger is well in touch on the conductors' national network, and is monitoring and taking advantage of developments, making the best use of information technology.
