Coronavirus Status

Update 19 April 2020 :
Choir Members : A newsletter sent to you today from our Chairman contains the decision taken by the team to cancel all events planned for the rest of this season, notably the concert planned for 6th June and the recording of the Da Vinci Requiem at the end of May.   The one exception to this is that we are still hoping to run the end of season quiz if the practicalities of using online meeting facilities for this can be done.   Watch this space!  
 
Update 24 March 2020 :
Ticket Purchasers : The refund stage has been completed by the ticketing system. It is now up to the banks and card companies to finish crediting the accounts of each cardholder. We are advised this could take another 7-8 days. Please be patient. Many thanks.
 
Update 22 March 2020 :
Everyone : All being back hopefully to some sense of relative normality by then, it is planned to reschedule the cancelled Rachmaninov/Britten concert for the Spring of 2021, again in Southwark Cathedral. Further details on the website once confirmed.
 
Update 21 March 2020 :
Choir Members : You should have received an email this morning bringing you up to date with what the current plans are for the short to medium term.   A copy of the email can be found on the Members/Choir Notices page.   Please note there will be no Monday rehearsals until further notice.   Please keep an eye on the Rehearsals page for further information.
Ticket Purchasers : The refund process is ongoing and taking a little longer than hoped.  It will probably tip into early next week for some.  Please bear with us.  Thanks.
 
Update 20 March 2020 :
Important Notice : The process of issuing refunds for ticket purchasers has begun and will continue over the weekend.  Please be patient with this.   The Society's executive team is still working through the aftermath of cancellation and assessing the way forward in the immediate to short term - especially about rehearsals and other events.   Choir members will be informed as soon as these discussions have been completed.   Please keep checking back to this page for further updates.
 
Update 17 March 2020 : 
With regret, Saturday's concert has been cancelled   
In light of the advice issued over the past 2-3 days by HM Government and other influential factors, the Society's executive team has taken the decision to cancel the concert in Southwark Cathedral that was scheduled for this coming Saturday 21st March.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.   Those of you who have purchased tickets for this concert will receive an email in the next 24 hours regarding the refunding of your ticket payments.   Choir members will have received an email from their respective voice reps to confirm that the remaining rehearsals and the concert itself have been cancelled.   Information on how the choir will operate in the coming weeks/months will be issued later this week.   Please be patient for receiving these items.   Thank you.
 
Update 16 March 2020 :
Tonight's rehearsal is cancelled
 
Update 15 March 2020 :
Important Notice : The Society's executive team is monitoring the current situation regarding COVID-19 on a frequent basis and using the advice from Public Health England and HM Government to determine its next steps. At the time of writing, the rehearsals and concert scheduled for this coming Saturday 21st March are still going ahead. Please check back here on a daily basis this week for any changes to this status.
