Dear Friends of Camberwell Chorale
While starting off rather well, 2020 is now becoming a time of challenge within our society, with the rapidly escalating Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the threat it poses within our community.
We at Camberwell Chorale have been rehearsing for a few weeks now, preparing a wonderful program of Handel and Haydn works for presentation on 26 April at the Hawthorn Arts Centre.
That said, we also have a responsibility to our Choristers, musicians of the Camerata Orchestra and participating Soloists, to do whatever we can to support their well-being in the current climate.
Accordingly, we have decided it would be best for all concerned to postpone the April concert to a date yet to be advised, and to suspend rehearsal activities for approximately six weeks (early May), at which time we will re-evaluate the situation in terms of our ongoing 2020 Program.
We’ll keep in touch with you all during this hiatus, with some snippets of information to whet your appetite for what will ultimately lie ahead in terms of performances.
As always, we greatly appreciate your ongoing support, and look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
From all of us at Camberwell Chorale, stay safe and stay healthy.
The Camberwell Chorale is a community of people which meets regularly to share the joy and challenge of learning and performing quality choral music. Members come from all around Melbourne, gathering in the City of Boroondara to celebrate their love of music, and to prepare for the usual five or six concerts a year. The Chorale has been doing this since 1944, and it’s still going strong!
We would welcome your application for Choir membership, your presence at our concerts, or your invitation to the Chorale for a performance at an occasion of your choice.
Camberwell Chorale is a member of ANCA.
Camberwell Chorale is proudly supported by the City of Boroondara.
