Many of you will know that the Valentines have been holding online rehearsals via Zoom during the last year due to the pandemic.
We are pleased to announce that physical rehearsals will resume on May 20th with small groups socially distanced, supported for a while by a continuation of our online practice.
We are looking forward to getting back to regular singing together without the need for a ‘mute’ button, and preparing for our next concert.
We already have some provisional concert dates pencilled in so please pop them into your diary. More information about how to obtain tickets will be shared via our website and social media pages nearer the time.
Provisional dates so far:

We are also opening the choir to new members. If you would like to join us, whether you are new to singing or would like to start singing again, then please get in touch. All our details can be found on our website.
