Coronavirus

We will take every precaution to keep our members safe. The following precautions will be in place and specific details will be sent to those attending.

Max singers with distancing: tbc

Singers will be at a minimum 2m distance from each other at all times, both in services and rehearsal. No socialising will be permitted on site. Extra cleaning will be conducted throughout the visit. Music folders will be prepared a week in advance to reduce contact. Cassocks and surplices will be provided on the day, prepared in advance and transported in plastic covers to reduce contact.

You should not attend if:

  • you or someone you live with is at high risk or shielding

  • you show any symptoms in the 14 days prior to the visit

  • you live in an area under tier 4 restrictions or above (eg local lockdown) at the time of the visit

We are monitoring the situation in Bradford and will not arrange a visit if we feel we cannot do it safely. A determination will be made nearer the time and those who have signed up for the visit will be informed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ed at md@harsnettchoir.org or Debs at visits@harsnettchoir.org

General info

All music will be provided on the day. You will be expected to have learnt music made available in advance of the visit. No time in the rehearsal will be given to note-bashing this music. We will spend more time looking at music introduced on the day. We regret that copyright does not always allow us to make all music available beforehand.

Cassocks and surplices will be provided on the day (if you are new, please send your approx height and build to Elizabeth at secretary@harsnettchoir.org).

Please wear quiet black shoes and black socks/tights as these might show under your cassock.

We do limit the number of people we can take to fit the stalls and maintain balance between the parts. Places are assigned on a first come first served basis. You will be informed promptly if you have a space. Please do not arrange non-refundable travel or accommodation until after this time. If you are unsure or need to know immediately, please contact Ed at md@harsnettchoir.org

We will not be arranging group accommodation for this visit.
