CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: in line with government guidance we have been busy rehearsing lots of lovely music via Zoom. Can you guess what our themes were each week? We have even managed a 'Virtual Choir' video of Will Todd's "Like a Rainbow Shining". We'll keep you posted with updates on concerts as soon as it is safe to schedule them. 
 
 
 

Meanwhile, please remember that if you bought a ticket for our concert at Didsbury Parish Church, planned for Saturday 28 March 2020, it will be transferrable as soon as circumstances allow a new date to be set.  Alternatively, please contact us for a refund.
