WELCOME TO SUMMERTOWN CHORAL SOCIETY
A well-established, mixed-voice choir based in North Oxford
We started our weekly online rehearsals on Thursday, 10 September. 108 people have signed up. It is still not too late to join us. The subscription for the term, till late January 2021, is just £30, which includes your own free copy of the score.
Our Music Director, Duncan Saunderson, will be conducting Brahms’ Requiem, with Julian Littlewood, our Accompanist, at the piano. We will be singing it in English. The rehearsals will be for just one hour, from 8pm. Members will have a chance to participate via Zoom. For more details, including how to participate, see the Chair’s letter to the choir of 14 August on the Members Weekly Notices page and subsequent emails there.
We are taking the view that a public performance of the Requiem is very unlikely in the near future. So we are unlikely to be able to honour the date we had set, 23 January 2021, at St Andrew’s Church with the Instruments of Time and Truth. But the situation could change, so we plan to be prepared. And of course we will move back to live rehearsals as soon as it becomes possible and is safe.
Those live rehearsals have taken place regularly on Thursday evenings, 8-9.30pm, at St Michael’s Church, Lonsdale Road, North Oxford. We welcome all voice parts and abilities – to the online rehearsals too. There is no audition.
