This year has been a strange one!
Hopefully everyone is safe and well and following all the government guidelines and social distancing instructions.
Here in Spain I think we have had a sensible approach to the 'lockdown' and we all feel safe thanks to the governments measures albeit they may have seemed harsh. But as we are now leaving lockdown, we can see some light at the end of the tunnel.
Choirs and singing have been effected in a big way and it is not sure as and when we can officially get back together. But in the hope it will soon be sorted our return to rehearsal date is Friday 4th Sept at 18:00 at our usual rehearsal venue of Hostal Rosaleda - all being well.
Granted groups of up to 20 (at the time of writing) can now meet it is still not certain of wise to think singing is a good option. The choir has 32 members so we cannot fully return as yet. Sectional practice in private with social distancing could resume, however I can image a lot are still cautious about getting together in groups.
If and when we are back, there are a few outstanding / postponed concerts that we could revive fairly quickly and hopefully all feel a bit better for doing so, but we will have to take it on advisement and follow the guidelines issued by the Junta de Andalucia.
In the meantime, there are always the backing tracks available to help you rehearse and have a sing along at home on your own - I know not the same as singing in a choir is it?
Stay safe and hope to see you all soon. D
