A message from our chair

Hello everybody. I haven’t been in touch for a while, so I just wanted to catch up and let you know what is going on.

Normally at this time of the year we would be well into rehearsals and starting to think about getting on the floor and beginning to find out what our director has in mind for us. Well that was then, and this is now. Whatever ‘normal’ is I’m not sure. It certainly isn’t anything that we know.

However, as many of you will know we haven’t been idle during our enforced stand-down. For the past few months we have had regular Zoom meetings, singing through a variety of G&S classics. We’ve also discovered that W S Gilbert did more than write librettos. He also wrote a  number of plays, one of which we performed recently.

We have a few more things in the pipeline, but more of that later.

Now I know that Zooming isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and not everyone can or wants to take part in these sessions. If there was something else we could do, then we would, but right now we just can’t. No one knows how long this will last.

So for the time being, just keep on singing whenever and wherever you can. And above all else, stay safe and keep well.
