The Music Department is pleased to say that University Chorus will be returning once more this Autumn! Colyer-Fergusson will resound to the sound of voices raised together once more, beginning on Monday 4 October.
The repertoire this term will be Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols and Holst's Christmas Day - we've missed out on a proper seasonal concert for the past two years, so this should MORE than make up for it! The concert is scheduled for Saturday 11 December.
After so long without being able to come together, we’re mindful that some people may still have concerns at the prospect; we’re pleased to confirm that the hall ventilation is COVID-compliant and we will, for the first few weeks at least, be keeping the doors into the car-park open - there's also the possibility of putting half of the choir into the audience-seating as well as using the choral-risers, so we can rehearse with some distance between singers.
It's likely that we will be asking members to wear masks when passing through the building. and we'll continue to take the usual Register of Attendance as an additional safety protocol - we'll write to confirm any particular arrangements before the first rehearsal.
For new external members wishing to join, please email the Head of Music Performance to arrange a short audition prior to the first rehearsal.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday 4 October at 7.30pm.
