Our Committee is continuing to take account of current Government guidance in place relating to Covid-secure rehearsals for amateur orchestras. Dates scheduled for rehearsal will be informed by this guidance, as will other Covid-secure arrangements such as deep cleaning the rehearsal venue and putting other social distancing precautions in place.
Present guidance precludes rehearsals of amateur groups involving more than 6 people. Players may be interested in the ongoing campaign by Making Music on this point. In the meantime, the Committee would like players to keep their diaries free for the following possible rehearsals:
Performance: 10th/14th November 2020: likely to be informal playthrough of string orchestra works including Grieg’s Holberg Suite with a restricted audience of family and friends.
Rehearsals (to be confirmed)
6, 13, 20 October
3, 10 November
Rehearsals (to be confirmed by the Committee) will take place from 7.45pm – 10pm at Holmer Green Baptist Church (Sat Nav HP15 6TD)

Because the size of group is dependent on the programme to be performed, players are selected by invitation on a concert by concert basis. For this reason, please don’t just turn up at rehearsals before checking that you are expected!
