With the world opening up and the end of his pandemic (hopefully) in sight, we finally have a date for choir to restart. Our first post-lockdown rehearsal will be on Monday 6th September, 7.45pm at Dagnall Church.
Whilst we are all looking forward to getting back together, the safety of choir members will be of the highest priority, so there will be all necessary measures in place to minimise risk of infection, including space between chairs, doors open for ventilation and hand sanitiser available.
We welcome choir members, old and new, who have had two covid vaccinations, and will require proof of this. This can be by showing your NHS Covid Pass which can be downloaded from the NHS app, or your vaccination card if this is not available. If you have been unable to have the vaccinations you will need to provide the result of a Rapid Lateral Flow test, taken prior to attending choir. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
Our rehearsals will focus on preparation for the Poppy Prom, which takes place at St Mary's Church, Eaton Bray on Saturday 13th November. This event is both a commemoration and a celebration, and the music that we will be performing will reflect this.
It will be truly wonderful to be able to sing together, perform and entertain once again.
Dagnall Community Choir is recruiting new members!
It’s been a long fifteen months since the choir were last able to meet and sing together, but we are hopeful that this summer we will finally be able to restart rehearsals and resume making the music together that we love. We can’t wait – we have missed it so much!
New members are particularly welcome as we relaunch the choir. Whether you are an accomplished chorist, or have never sung before, we would love you to join us. There are no auditions, and you don’t have to read music to join our choir – a love of music is the only qualification required.
All being well, our Monday night rehearsals will restart in good time for us to prepare for our first public performance since the lockdown, which will be at the Poppy Prom at St Mary’s Church, Eaton Bray, on Saturday 13th November. We will join the South Beds Concert Band for what should be a wonderful night of music, remembrance and celebration.
We are all so looking forward to our community choir being able to meet and perform again!
