The Manly Warringah Choir is pleased to be able to report that plans are in hand for a resumption of activities in April 2021.
Initially rehearsals will re-commence on Thursday evenings. See below for details.
The Choir aims to present two concerts during 2021. Our usual venue, the Cardinal Cerretti Chapel in Manly, is not currently available. The Committee is researching alternative venues.
Many thanks to Carlos, Jim and Melissa for setting up virtual rehearsals on Zoom last November and December, and to those members who attended the Social events at Manly Dam.
Rehearsals re-commence on Thursday April 1st in the large hall at Collaroy Plateau School.
It is a priority of the Choir to maintain a Covid-safe environment for all members. The Choir has a Covid Plan which each member will receive and will be expected to observe. Therefore there will be some changes in how rehearsals are conducted.

Rehearsals will start at 7.30pm and finish at 9.00pm with a 5 minute break for standing and stretching.
On arriving, members will undergo a temperature check, register their attendance either on the School’s Service NSW App or on paper, and be admitted to the hall in a manner ensuring adequate social distancing.
Seating will be arranged to conform with the 1.5 metre spacing and 2 square metre per person regulations.
Members needing to use the toilets should do so whenever needed, not waiting for a break in rehearsal.
At the end of the rehearsal, each member should clean their chair with an anti-virus wipe which will be supplied.
Despite the need to be vigilant in observing these new practices, Carlos and the Committee confidently expect rehearsals to be joyful and uplifting occasions. Should you have any concerns about the arrangements, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Committee.
