Members’ information

Rehearsal protocols from September 2021

For the safety of everyone involved, including our conductor and accompanist, the following measures will be put in place at rehearsals:
a) Arrival (and departure) will be socially distanced.
b) Face-coverings must be worn when not singing at all times. Members may choose to sing with or without a face-covering.*
c) Hand sanitiser will be available.
d) Seating will be distanced – in sections.
e) Rehearsal time will be limited to 1.5 hours, with a short comfort break. Otherwise, members will remain seated.

To protect others, we will expect all who attend to have been double-vaccinated, and to take a lateral flow test before each rehearsal. The latter will definitely be required for anyone not able to be vaccinated for medical reasons.

Protocols will be reviewed regularly and updated in line with the latest advice.

*Advice on face-coverings suitable for singing is available from the Choir Secretary on 0161 485 1659.


Rehearsal websites

The following websites provide singers with a rehearsal system which singles out individual parts and, in the case of cyberbass, allows the opportunity to practise at different speeds.

The YouTube site is also useful for hearing works in performance:
