PLEASE NOTE: This page will not be updated as regularly as usual during our lockdown. Caroline’s Newsletter will keep us all up to date!

SPONSORED CHARITY: For the year 2020 we are sponsoring a local charity, The Hospice of St Francis. To see what they do click HERE for their website.

DACORUM COMMUNITY CHOIR at home:   As all rehearsals and performances are cancelled until further notice, due to the current Covid-19 health regulations and advice, Rufus is making YouTube videos for our “at home” virtual rehearsals. You can access the videos and the word-sheets by clicking on the “Rehearsals at home” page above.

Rufus has sent the link to Sung Eucharist at the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace.  Click HERE.  He writes:

‘When we went on our choir trip to Amsterdam, I wrote a Gloria setting for the community choir. Over the last week, I have added the other mass movements. Yesterday, at Hampton Court, I sang and played the complete mass for the first time (the choir is not yet allowed to return so this seemed an appropriate way of ensuring there was some sung music!). I thought that some of you might be interested in seeing how the work has lived on.’

SPRING CONCERT: The Spring Concert on Saturday 14th March was cancelled.  We hope to be able to reschedule the concert later in the year and you can retain your current tickets which will be valid for the rescheduled event.. Refunds will be available if you request.

READING MUSIC: Tuesdays at 11.30 immediately following our rehearsals. See Judi for details, (currently also cancelled)

CHARITY COLLECTIONS:  COPPER COINS for the Church collection bottle, and USED POSTAGE STAMPS for Motor Neurone Disease Association.

DON’T FORGET:    You can raise money for the choir at absolutely no cost to yourself whenever you shop online. Just visit the “easyfundraising” website to register and, when asked to choose your cause, select “Dacorum Community Choir”. If you register by clicking on our invitation link   HERE   the choir will also be credited with an extra £1 signing on fee!
