Hillingdon Choral Society's Autumn Term

Rehearsals are running in shorter sessions than usual, from 7.45pm until 9.00pm.

  • After a few online sessions to get us going this term we are now starting to meet in small, pre-defined groups for our rehearsals. We are operating in accordance with government guidance, and will resume full in-person rehearsals when we can. Sadly, we will not be able to hold a Christmas concert this year.


    In-person rehearsals will be shorter and with fewer people attending than usual. Email Eirwen if you are planning to attend.

    When attending an in-person rehearsal, please sanitise your hands on entering the building using the facilities provided.

    You will need to wear a face covering (mask) at all times to attend in-person rehearsals. Current research suggests visors do not adequately prevent the projections of aerosols, so are not an alternative to a mask.

    We will be maintaining 2 metres social distancing at all times.

    Please bring your own water, and do not share music, pencils etc.

    Do not attend if you or a member of your household feels at all unwell!

    The Church has done a full risk assessment and has arranged the building in accordance with government guidelines. The choir has also completed the necessary paperwork for risk assessments and safeguarding.

    If you do not feel able to attend the session, then why not join in via Zoom? We will be streaming the session as it happens via a Zoom link. If you haven’t tried Zoom before, now is your chance. It really is very easy: just click on the link in the email members will receive and you will be linked to the session at URC. You can then sing along in the privacy of your own home.

    Email hillingdonchoralsociety@gmail.com if you need further information.
