It was a different sort of singing year in 2020. From March to late October, we suspended our face-to-face rehearsals but continued to enjoy each other's company on Zoom. We resumed face-to-face rehearsals in late October and followed strict Covid safe protocols according to the plan required by our venue. We were delighted to be able to perform in a Covid safe Christmas Picnic Concert in December - outside, socially distanced, everyone checked in and only for family and friends. So lovely to share music once again! You can see our Christmas performance on our YouTube channel

Our strict COVID safe protocols will continue in 2021. They include:
  • rehearsal from 7.30 to 9.30 pm with a short break mid way
  • all members to check in using the CBR Check-in app
  • we request that the kitchen is not used so bring your own drinks (water/tea)
  • seating arrangement with chairs at least 2 metres apart and use of only one chair during the rehearsal
  • no sharing of music, pencils etc
  • use of natural air flow as much as possible
  • routine of sanitising and wiping surfaces.
  • no attendance if you are unwell
  • no attendance if you have visited a designated 'hot spot' in the past 14 days
  • no hugging or physical contact.
We look forward to welcoming YOU as a new member in 2021!
