COVID-19 UPDATE

Little did we expect, when we stopped rehearsing a year ago, that we would still be unable to sing together twelve months later. Of course no-one could have foreseen that choral singing was to be elevated from a civilised pursuit into Public Health Enemy No.1. We have watched in admiration how organisations like Zurich Opera managed to perform Brahms’ German Requiem by scattering chorus members around a 1000 seater baroque auditorium, and how other choirs have harnessed the power of Zoom to sing together, but lacking such great spaces and technological wizardry, the Broughton Choral Society has remained muted – after all much of the point of a choir like ours is that it brings people together. Some might even say that our concerts are primarily great social events, with the addition of some excellent music. With that in mind, we did HOPE to perform last summer, and again at Christmas, as we hatched a plan to sing carols outside the village hall and dish out mulled wine to passers-by. It was not to be. Now we wonder if we will be able to do anything this June? Breathe deeply, put on a mask, and hope for a miracle. Whatever we can do, we’ll be certain to let you know.
