Like a lot of other organisations, the choir has been in limbo since the start of lockdown. When lockdown first started we decided to cancel all concerts up to July and then review the situation. Following that review all concerts to the end of 2020 have also been cancelled.
However, the choir has been able to meet using Zoom and whilst not being able to sing we have practised vocal techniques with the help of our Musical Director Dr. Jane Oakland.
More recently, we have also met in small groups in the gardens of two of our members and have started to learn some new songs, including a medley from the musical Paint Your Wagon.
Watch us rehearse in the rain !
In normal times, the choir met on a weekly basis to practice at Bournemouth School for Girls. The school has now allowed up to 15 members to meet at the school. Providing we follow their Covid secure guidelines we shall be re-starting practices on the 15th of September, rotating in groups of 15.
It is impossible to predict when we shall be able to perform in concert but bearing in mind the above, we will be ready when the time comes.
Choir committee August 2020
We are an inclusive choir, open to all men who have an interest in singing.
We value a willingness to learn and commitment to the choir over vocal ability.
Although many of us have had little previous experience of singing, we pride ourselves on the high quality of singing that we achieve with the guidance of our musical team.
