Our Choir


Rehearsing at Home - Spring 2021

If you would like to join the rehearsals, please email our Secretary for details on how to do so.

As for Autumn last year, our plans for Spring 2021 are somewhat different from previous years. We shall begin weekly rehearsals online on Tuesday 19th January, which will provide the opportunity for members to get together and practise their own parts with accompaniment and encouragement from Andrew! Later, when the risk of transmission is lower and guidelines permit, some of us may be able to meet and sing together in a venue that accommodates singers with appropriate distancing and other protective measures. Once again, members may have the opportunity to contribute to a virtual performance, by recording a video of themselves singing their part.

The 'online rehearsals' will be on Zoom. If you haven't used Zoom before, please see Zoom for beginners.

This page provides recordings to help you rehearse this term's pieces on your own, as well as links to download free copies of the scores if you don't already have your own.
