LATEST NEWS: And now the 2021 trip to Porto has had to be cancelled. BUT, read the message below from our Musical Director, Duncan Saunderson, for news of a ‘staycation’ version of the trip:
“The trip to Porto this August unfortunately is off.
With so much uncertainty about travelling, and singing indoors, but people needing to book up soon, postponing seems the best option. And if there is a green light for travelling sometime over the next 5 months, the stampede, queues and crowds could be horrendous.
Nobody more disappointed than me of course!
However, I’m working on an Oxford “staycation” sing in August. This is a good opportunity for anyone interested in the chamber choir singing we do.
Details to come but singing strictly outdoors, and plenty of wine tasting in between the madrigals, part-songs, motets and maybe a Mass setting.
All best, Duncan”
Unfortunately the 2020 trip, detailed below, had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus. But the same location is already confirmed for next year. The dates are Monday to Sunday, 9 – 15 August 2021.
The 2020 trip will be to Porto, Portugal. Dates are Monday-Sunday, August 17-23, 2020, with a concert on Saturday 22 at St James’ Anglican Church, to be followed by singing in the Church service the following morning. The average highest temperature in Porto in July and August is 25°C. Anyone interested in going on this trip should find out more from Duncan, as well as speak to choir members who have been on previous trips.
