Coronavirus Update (5 January 2021)

On 16 March 2020 the Covid-19 lockdown commenced, and our in-person activities ceased. With last night’s announcement of another lockdown, we expect to continue with Home Choir through until at least the end of February 2021. Our Musical Director has tailored this so that we can extract every possible benefit, and we continue to welcome new members, even in these unusual times. Between April and December 2020 we worked alongside his other choirs in Huntingdon, Leamington Spa, and Wellingborough, on shared repertoire and activities, but this term we are taking a step closer to normality (virtually!) and focusing on different repertoire with each choir.

On Mondays from 7:30pm to 9:00pm we will be singing music by Haydn, Mozart, and their contemporaries on Zoom, whilst the Huntingdonshire Philharmonic will be singing music by Dvořák and Janáček on Tuesdays, the Royal Leamington Spa Bach Choir will be singing Bach motets on Wednesdays, and on Thursdays the Wellingborough Singers will be preparing two contrasting programmes of music - one by Dan Forrest, and another from the pen of Sir Arthur Sullivan. Of course, we do not yet know when we will be able to meet again to rehearse in person, let alone when we might perform these programmes to an audience, but we do know that the music will resound again, and some day you will be able to hear the fruits of our labours.

We will continue to have shared expert sessions on Fridays at 4:00pm for all four choirs, and look forward to welcoming academics, conductors, instrumentalists, and singers, from all over the globe, to talk to us about our shared passion for choral music.

Please do keep a close eye on our website for updates, and thank you for your continued support.
