Picnic in the park

A lovely afternoon in Buckingham Park. On Sunday 18th July 29 members of the Shoreham Oratorio Choir met for the first time since March 2020. A chance to chat, catch-up and talk about the future. Luckily the sun shone and our shady location was the perfect place to spend a couple of hours with friends.

Online Rehearsals

Shoreham Oratorio Choir like many choral groups have not been able to meet and sing together since March 2020. To help keep our members singing, on-line rehearsals began via Zoom.

A link was sent to all our members who are invited to take part. This link also gave access to the music we would be singing – the scores (pdf) and the rehearsal files. These grew each week as new material was added.

The sessions were expertly led by our M.D. Marc Yarrow and largely followed the traditional rehearsal format – lots of fun and lots of singing. Up to 28 participants logged-on weekly. Well done and thank you.
