Given the continuing risk of coronavirus transmission, face to face rehearsals continue in this covered outdoor environment while the search for a suitable more weather-protected alternative venue continues. The risks and restrictions during the pandemic make many venues, including some of which are available, unsuitable, but the committee is attempting to source a comfortable and affordable venue which meets requirements.
Singers who will be absent from a rehearsal should notify their absence in advance on the sign-in sheet the week before if possible, and also by advising the Music Director or Membership Secretary. This can be done during the week leading into the rehearsal via the choir email. An apology on the day (because of illness or unexpected work commitments) should be sent by text to the choir phone: 0475 262 649.
NB: Decisions by members to remain absent from rehearsals during the pandemic is understood and respected, although this intention also must be conveyed to the Music Director.
Membership fees for 2021 have been determined as follows:
