Zoom Sessions have been running regularly since 5 September ... You don't have to wear a hat .....
We are working towards a mixed live and virtual carol service sponsored by TfL to be held at St Martin-in-the-Fields on Wednesday 9 December. Plans are to record nine carols and, if circumstances permit on the day, a small group will sing four of them live at the church to an invited audience and the remainder will be 'beamed' to those attending while the whole event, including readings, will be webcast. Clearly there are lots of logistical challenges involved but we have been rehearsing the carols since early July, with a break in August, so we aim to be on top form.
Meanwhile we are all working in our operational jobs or at home - singing at home - or whatever. See our new Activities page - formerly Rehearsals - for what is happening.
