The choir will resume rehearsals on Tuesday 5th October 2021 at 17:00 in our usual rehearsal venue, Hostal Rosaleda.
It has been 19 months since we last met, so the first evening is going to be more of a social, catch up, chat and sort out the forthcoming season and discuss any changes and updates.
Existing members please check through your wardrobe and make a list of choir stage wear items and sizes in your possession so we can do a bit of a muster. For members who left and you are holding their stage-wear perhaps you could bring it along. We have at least one new member to kit out.
The rehearsals for singing will commence fully the following week and social distancing must be observed with the layout of seats and masks must still be worn when walking about the rehearsal hall.
A programme of mixed Christmas music has been put together to ease us gently in to singing again with a view to present an informal 'Friends and Family' style "Christmas Sing-along" on Tuesday 14th Dec at our rehearsal room. A retiring collection can be held for local charities and our usual raffle can be arranged for choir funds. Hopefully a good night to look forward to.
We are already in discussion with Walk for Life to resume the cancelled concert from 2020 and this may be the spring of 2022, so watch the Concert page for more details.
Here's to what we do best - SING!
I hope you are all keeping safe and well and manage to be with friends and family over the Christmas New Year period.
This has been an unprecedented year thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic and has effected many people in different ways. Sadly for us singers and choirs we have not seen any return to normality nor may we for a while yet. Sad to say we may see the anniversary of the start of the pandemic before we get back to singing.
As there is no end in sight but there is movement on releasing a vaccine plus inoculating people, let's hope the 'norm' returns quickly then we can get back to doing what we like best - singing together as a choir.
In the meantime I wish you well and I am obviously planning a new programme of music so if you have any suggestions, please contact me!
Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, stay safe and well and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2021!
David - Musical Director for the Incognito Singers
