WE continue to rehearse outside for the moment. Singing is a high risk activity and we don’t have the space to be able to socially distance inside. We are also still running choir on zoom once a month. This has been a wonderful way of connecting to those who are not based in London.

Please contact us if you wish to take part in our woodland or zoom sessions, and visit bandcamp for CDs and downloadable tracks! Thankyou!!!!
