General info

Copies of all music will be available to you on the day, but will also be made available in advance so that you may download the pack and sing from your tablet, reducing physical contact.

No time in the rehearsal will be given to note-bashing music.

Cassocks and surplices will be provided on the day, prepared in advance, and transported in plastic covers to reduce contact. If you are new, please send your approx height and build to Ed at md@harsnettchoir.org).

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

We are limiting the number we can take to allow for distancing in the stalls. This does mean we are taking many fewer singers than normal on this visit. You will specificially be told if you have a place on the visit. Please do not arrange non-refundable travel or accommodation until this has happened.

We will not be arranging group accommodation for this visit.
