Our first physical rehearsal together in nearly 18 months this week was a joyous occasion! We felt safe, we felt happy, and we were over the moon to finally meet our new MD Hugh Beckwith who was absolutely brilliant and had us enthralled from start to finish! As one member enthused, “Hugh is a wonderful conductor and music flows out from every pore. I think we all left floating on air! Here’s to the next rehearsal!”
With Covid safety measures in place - double vaccines, lateral flow tests, registration, masks, ventilation, distancing etc - our members were more than ready to return to choir this week, however, for the first few weeks at least we will be splitting the choir into two halves, with each 'choir' rehearsing on alternate weeks. Hopefully we will get the go ahead soon for us to meet 'as one' We have several potential new members eager to join us and we very much look forward to welcoming them to a rehearsal soon. We are also looking forward to starting preparations for our Christmas concert on Saturday 4th December at Addlestone Community Centre.
