It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of our March and June concerts and the suspension of all choir rehearsals until September. If the situation improves suddenly and government advice/directive changes, then we will reassess. The health and wellbeing of our audience, singers, musicians and their families are of paramount importance.
We will pay the soloists their fees for the cancelled March concert for two reasons: our contract with them says for any cancellation within 4 weeks we must pay in full; but more importantly, we feel we have a moral obligation to support them in what are very hard times for freelance musicians who are losing income on a frightening scale. This means we will incur a total loss of very nearly £2000 for the March concert and musician rehearsal fees for the rest of the season. We therefore hope that ticket holders can support us, by not asking for reimbursement of tickets but carry the loss themselves, if they can.
Look after each other.
