ACTUALLY GMC:

JANUARY 2021

Chorus Rep calling!

Happy New Year everyone, and hearty congratulations once more for The Spirit of Christmas which really was a little bit of Christmas Magic to see out 2020.

As I write this, we find ourselves in the midst of more local COVID restrictions which will impact our ability to return to in-person rehearsals in January. Whilst I appreciate that this will be a disappointment for all of us, the board has decided to postpone our new term until Thursday 4th February, subject to government guidance at that time.

And so, we have a month where we will give you the optional opportunity to meet online via Zoom, and I call on all of you to continue the great work of looking out for each other throughout the restrictions. We will discuss on 7th what you would like to include in these sessions

Chris Tippett is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
