We are really pleased to say that all ensembles are returning to live rehearsals next week.
Your Ensemble Director will be contacting you directly with specific information for your group, but I have attached the schedule of rehearsals as they stand now. The schedule is very similar to September, although there are a few changes to note:
- Chinley Junior Wind Band will be moving to Chinley Community Centre. Rosie will be sending you full details.
- Flutz will run for an hour from 5.30-6.30 on Fridays and the Clarinets and Saxes will now be at the slightly later time of 7-7.45pm
- The brass ensembles and percussion have been reconfigured – you should have received the new groupings, but I will be sending it out again over the weekend.
Please note final sessions this year will now be Friday 2nd July and Monday 5th July.
The plan is for each ensemble to present its own short concert towards the end of the term. This will be with a small audience and will be in compliance with current Covid regulations at the time. All the performances will be recorded and broadcast in a YouTube Summer Concert on Sunday 11th July.
As a reminder of requirements and expectations I have attached a copy of the Covid rules which all students and parents must read carefully. Please remember that students come from a number of different schools, so our distancing rules must be strictly observed.
We can also confirm that Theory classes will be recommencing in Bradbury House 4.15pm on Fridays. We have vacancies and strongly recommend the course for players who have reached Grade 3 on their instrument. It is a requirement for progressing to ABRSM Grade 6 and beyond on an instrument that students have passed Grade 5 theory.
We are looking forward so much to seeing you all again and working towards some wonderful performances at the end of June.
