Orchestra is back!

After an enforced interregnum, of 18 months orchestra is returning to rehearsals on Tuesday 7 September.

The date is fast approaching so we have been working on the orchestra's Covid-19 risk assessment for The Minster Church and our return to rehearsals information for our members.

It is all very self-explanatory really and no surprises. The biggest change for our rehearsals (hopefully for the short term) is that everyone is encouraged to bring their own music stand to avoid close contact sharing - and pencils etc and sadly their own refreshments. We shall work on the basis that we shall wear face masks when we are not sat down - like in a restaurant! Obviously, we shall be more spaced out with more ventilation so please wrap up warm especially as we are entering the winter months!

The full risk assessment and return to rehearsals document has been emailed to our members. If you have not received it please do get in touch.

We are excited to be welcoming some new members to our group whilst equally offering encouragement to those members who are a little worried about whether they can remember how to play! (Myself included!) We shall certainly take this term gently and enjoy being and playing together; I'm sure it's like riding a bike!

The countdown has begun... see you on the 7th September at The Minster Church of St Denys at 7.30pm!

Best wishes to you all,
