Alan Robinson, Paul Hill and Ian Wells on the continuing restrictions on choral singing under coronavirus regulations
Our small local choir was working hard towards a performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria for Easter 2020 when the pandemic struck. We immediately shut up shop, and have continued to follow government guidelines as to possible resumption dates, now postponed by a further four weeks (PM announces four-week delay to Covid lockdown easing in England, 14 June). Since March 2020, not a note have we sung.
We are an ageing choir and many members will not return when we do resume. The choir may be unviable by the time singing is allowed.
