Rehearsal on 2 November

We will meet to rehearse on Monday 2 November as previously planned. The Lockdown that begins on Thursday 5 November will mean that we cannot meet again in November. If Lockdown ends as currently suggested on Tuesday 2 December, we may be able to meet again on Mondays 7th and 14 December. But rest assured that we will keep you up to date with any plans.

The committee plans to hold the AGM by email over this month, so Mary will emailing all members about that during November.

I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow evening (I’m writing this on Sunday evening).



Rehearsal restarting after Covid

Our choir is able to meet and rehearse again after a 6 month break – hurrah!

Current members should receive an email from Mary Burke and Nick Houghton on 18 September giving details, but a copy of the letter is found here.

In brief: we meet for the first time on Monday 28 September at St Thomas Church, Cliffe High Street, Lewes, BN7 2AH. As we have to restrict numbers, Sopranos will rehearse from 7-8pm; Altos, Tenors and Basses from 8.30-9.30pm. We look forward to seeing you then.

New REVISED rehearsal schedule (Jan 2020)

Dear choir members

Please have a look at the newly revised New Rehearsal Schedule Jan – June 2020

It includes the Joint rehearsal with East Sussex Bach Choir on Saturday 22 February 2pm-4.40pm at All Saints Centre, Lewes.

Also I’ve put two new rehearsals on 30 March and 6 April, after our performance of Dream of Gerontius and before Easter, where previously we had a big gap of a month. This allows us to prepare properly for the Pells concert which is very early in June.

There’s also a Saturday workshop on Saturday 2 May at our usual venue, to make up for the two Bank Holiday Monday rehearsals that we generally miss.

This means that the choir will have had 30 rehearsals in the season leading up to the Pells concert on 6 June. And then those singers who are coming on the trip to France at the end of June, will have 3 rehearsals to prepare for that trip as a smaller group.

I feel happier that this gives us more time to prepare properly for our concerts this year, and hope that it suits most of you.

Thanks. Nick
