Singing together as a part choir

The Choir will be rehearsing together in person from 24 June.  The Committee has put a lot of work into making sure that we meet all our legal obligations and keep ourselves and each other as safe as possible.

Attached are guidelines for singers, and also the Choir's Risk Assessment.

The period to 24 June will be spent becoming familiar with three works:
Just as the Tide
Good Night dear Heart
Lovers' Ghost

Marianne's Newsletter dated 22 May


Roger says that if all is well, there will be a performance of The Messiah with one other short piece on 13 November.
