Fall Rehearsal Guidelines – PLEASE READ

In order to provide the safest possible environment for our singers, the Board has made the following decisions regarding fall rehearsals: 

  • To provide more space and better ventilation, rehearsals will be moved to Dianeโ€™s church, First United Church of Christ, Hampton.
  • ALL SINGERS MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO RETURN TO REHEARSALS. This was a difficult decision to make, but as singing is identified as a high risk activity (and with the highly contagious COVID Delta variant moving quickly among unvaccinated people), we felt the best way to protect our members was to have a fully vaccinated chorus. Your appearance at rehearsal signals that you are attesting to having been fully vaccinated.
  • Since all singers will be fully vaccinated, masks and social distancing will not be required. If singers are more comfortable wearing a mask and sitting apart from the main group, they will be welcome to do so.
  • If you are not feeling well or are experiencing any of the following symptoms, please remain at home: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell.
  • Rehearsals will resume on Monday, August 9th from 7 – 9:30 p.m. There will be no rehearsal on Labor Day. This will allow for eight rehearsals before our tentative concert dates.
