Autumn term 2020 Arrangements

STOP PRESS – Due to latest Govt. guidelines rehearsals are now postponed until further notice.

Previous proposals for a return to rehearsals

Due to Covid-19 this Autumn term will be rehearsals only for sectionals with strings playing one week and woodwind/brass/percussion the next.  Instead of an end of term concert we will be recording two end-of-term performances without audience and subsequently sharing the video’s on this website.

We have done an SSO Covid-19 rehearsal-risk-assessment and a resultant SSO Covid-19 rehearsal procedure which all players must follow.

Also here for completeness are the Shottery Memorial Hall Covid-19 Risk Assessment v3 and Shottery Memorial Hall hirers covid agreement.

Due to the limited number of players that can be safely accommodated in the Memorial Hall with 2m social distancing it will be necessary for string players to pre-register for rehearsals using the link below. This link will become active 7 days before the rehearsal date with places allocated on a first come first served basis.
