Coronavirus

Last updated: 02 June

We take the health and wellbeing of our members very seriously. On 17 March 2020, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York advised that public worship should be suspended until further notice.

Further advice on how you can protect yourself and others.

Guidance from the Church of England.

St Paul's Cathedral, 25th May

Our first scheduled visit after lockdown was to St Paul's Cathedral on 25 May. This was cancelled shortly after the lockdown was announced. We have not cancelled any other future visits at this stage.

Summer residency at Norwich Cathedral, 3rd-9th August

Sadly, we have to cancel our summer residency to Norwich Cathedral. This will be the first year since its creation that the choir has not met for a week in the summer. Realistically, although churches may be open and public worship restarted by the time of our visit, it is unlikely that singing as part of services (indeed singing indoors) will be permitted for some time.

Members who had already paid their deposits should contact John directly, or through secretary@harsnettchoir.org to arrange a refund.

The choir's social side and its sense of community has always been an important part of the choir. The committee is looking into ways that we can hold a social gathering of some sort during the first week in August when we would have been singing together. More information will follow.

Further ahead

The committee is continuing to plan for all of our future visits. Should any of these have to be cancelled, all members of the choir who had expressed an interested in the visit will be informed. This will take place on a visit by visit basis. We thank you for your patience.
