We regret that in view of the worsening effects of the coronavirus, and taking into account the well-being of our members and audience, we have decided to cancel our Brentwood Cathedral concert. We are very disappointed that it has come to this after everyone’s hard work, but we hope you will all agree that we have done the right thing. We do need to collect all the music and we ask that members come to the cathedral school at the usual time today to do that. If anyone wants to keep clear of other people they should simply leave their music in the box which will be just inside the door to the hall. We want to minimise our losses and the late return of music leads to extra hire charges. Will anyone who is not able either to come along today, or to give their music to someone who will be there, please let us know by email today so that alternative arrangements can be made.
Rehearsals are cancelled until further notice.
