Good Afternoon Ladies.

I’ve held off sending this message until the full information was made available to us.

The Crescendo Concert on 21st March has unfortunately been postponed until a later date. 

As the UK moves into the ‘Delay’ phase of the Covid-19 pandemic, Repton School will close. As a result of this, and medical advice, Repton School have unfortunately had to cancel our booking. 

We are working closely with Repton School to get a new date, but this cannot be agreed until the current situation becomes clearer. As soon as a new date has been agreed we will communicate this to everyone. 

Tickets that have been purchased for the event will be valid for the new date, but we will also offer refunds if people request them. Nic will handle this. 

Obviously this is a very disappointing development, but absolutely the correct course of action to take in the current climate. The very last thing that any of us want is for our friends and family to become infected because of a choir concert, but please remember this is not a cancellation only a postponement. You have all worked extremely hard in getting to this point, and the concert will still take place as soon as it is safe to do so. 

Finally, as our age range is so diverse within the choir and we have a number of extremely valued members who are within the ‘higher risk’ age groups, I have taken the decision that we will also observe a five week break, effective immediately. Your safety is of absolute importance, and so we will return to choir on 22nd April 2020 subject to additional restrictions. 

To summarise: 

  • Choir Concert on 21st March postponed until later date. 

  • All Choir rehearsals cancelled until further notice.

Your understanding is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to seeing you all whenever we can. Rest assured that as soon as I get more information, I will communicate it out to you. Please cascade all the above information to choir members not on Facebook. This notice will also be placed on the website. 

All enquiries please contact me – 07747 034562
