en Choir online – 16 September 2020

Update: 2 September 2020:

Due to COVID-19, St Andrews church hall (our regular rehearsal venue) are only able to allow the nursery and dance school to meet at the church. This decision has been made in accordance with their insurance and a risk assessment. This will be reviewed after October half term. Until then, we do not have a venue. Further, most recent guidance from the government on the legalities of a large choir meeting to sing indoors is somewhat dubious. We have made the decision to start sessions online. Our first session will be led by Kate on Wednesday 16th September at 7.45pm until 8.45pm with a brief social after.

 We are holding this session FREE OF CHARGE to see if it can work, and to have a chat with you about the feasibility of continuing online until we review the situation with mid-October.
 
Existing, old and new members are welcome to come along. As it is online, if you were a member of en Choir but moved to a different part of the UK this is your change to have a go in the comfort of your living room! You will need to be on the en Choir mailing list to receive the link to access the session, and other materials (lyrics etc) in advance. To be added to the mailing list please email enchoirwithin@gmail.com.
 
Looking forward to seeing you there!
 
Emily and Kate
