Fine Music For Free - Summer Recitals, 2020
Live Music Returns in 2021
We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all our recitals for 2020. We had hoped to continue with them in September and October, but, unfortunately, we have had to concede that it is too difficult for our small team of volunteers to run the recitals safely while keeping on top of the mandatory sanitising regime and also staffing the toilets.
So it is our plan to reassess the situation in the New Year with a view to running a full series from April 2021, if circumstances permit. By then, we hope, some of the restrictions will have eased, particularly regarding performance by choirs, and we may also be able to return to offering hospitality as well.
Since 2017 many talented musicians have helped us raise funds to pay for our Bechstein grand piano by performing at the church for free or next-to-nothing. Now many of them are experiencing financial difficulties at the cessation of their work and the uncertainty that has engulfed their careers. In these difficult times, it is our turn to give something back and when we are able to host music again we'll be passing 90% of the retiring collections to our performers.
