As I write we are just about to plunge into the projected heatwave – if it’s not one thing then it’s another!!
I promised to let you know the results of our deliberations regarding rehearsal venues as soon as I could. I’m pleased to say that following extensive research and discussions, your Committee has agreed that for the 22-23 Season, we shall continue to rehearse at WGGS for the Autumn and Spring terms. Under the new terms presented to us, the school is unavailable for hire during exam periods due to the logistics of moving all the pre-set desks. We shall therefore move to St Lukes’ Church, Langley Way for the summer term following our performance of The Petite Messe Solonelle.
I do hope this will settle any anxiety or concerns you may have had and you will receive full instructions regarding start and finishing times from our Rehearsal Manager, Margaret Burke. The new contract with the school has far more limitations than before and we are mindful that we are very much under strict control regarding timing. I would therefore ask you to be aware and comply with our requests.
So finally, keep safe, keep cool and we very much look forward to returning to WPS rehearsals at Watford Girls Grammar School on 5th September to keep singing!
