Keeping Safe from Covid-19

This section will be updated with all of the information for members to attend rehearsals in a safe way. This is based on a Risk Assessment and coming from that some specific Guidance to Members. There will be a responsibility on everyone to take precautions to protect themselves and the needs of others while we once more ‘find our voice’.

The source document is the risk assessment, which outlines the known problems and the mitigations which are being put in place to minimise the possibility of infection.

There is also a summary of this as Guidance to Members.

These documents will be updated if regulations, guidance or circumstances change. Members should note that it may be necessary for rehearsals to be cancelled at short notice if circumstances change and they should regularly check for email circulations before attending.

Future Programme Proposals

This would normally outline the proposed programme of concerts for the coming years but, as you will understand, all of our planning has been disrupted by the pandemic. For the moment we cannot provide the details of concerts and so the following are simply possible concert dates. All dates are 7.30 p.m. on Saturdays in Sunderland Minster unless otherwise noted.

December 4th 2021 – there are no specific plans for this date at the moment

A New Start

As you will be aware it has not been possible to hold choir rehearsals for some time because of Covid-19 and all of our recent concert plans had to be cancelled. However we now have a target date to resume rehearsals of Wednesday 8th September 2021. Arrangements are being put in place to make these rehearsals Covid-secure and details of how this will be done are now published in the Members News section for anyone to consult. We very much look forward to re-establishing regular concerts but this will take some time to organise while we ‘find our voice’. All details will be published here under Events in due course.
