September Concert Update
September Concert Update: very sadly the decision has had to be taken to cancel our September concert. The situation we all find ourselves in makes the future very difficult indeed to predict, but the committee felt it very unlikely that it would be allowed to go ahead and it seemed most sensible to make the decision early so people know how things stand. However, the concert programme we had planned was too good to give up on completely and, as we are most fortunate that Richard Laing is available to conduct it next year, we have decided to re-scheduled it for 12th September 2021. A date for your diaries now!
No decision has been made regarding the November concert at this stage but it seems increasingly likely that any large gatherings will not be allowed until a vaccine has been found for Covid-19. Let us all keep our fingers crossed that the scientists can come up with something that will allow things to return to something like normal by then!
June workshop update
The June 14th workshop is postponed — possible new date is one of the Saturdays in January but it hasn’t been fixed. Please be patient! Not sure what to say about Coronavirus other than we were very lucky indeed to get the last concert done. Nothing can be decided about September yet but we are praying this situation is long resolved by then.
Welcome to the New Season!
We hope that you will enjoy taking part in all of the concerts that are scheduled this year and also the two workshops. Plus, there may be an extra musical ‘adventure’ at the end of this year, but more about that at a later date.
The March concert is conducted, as usual, by Michael Lloyd and we are delighted to welcome back the wonderful singer Alison Roddy as our soloist for this concert. This concert was originally scheduled for March 2019 but, due to the cancellation of the March 2018 concert thanks to the infamous Beast of the East II, it was moved to 2020 and, luckily, Alison was available and happy to postpone to this year.
