Like other performing groups, we had to suspend our music-making in March 2010 in line with Government regulations and associated measures designed to limit the spread of the COVID virus. Now that these restrictions have been relaxed we are delighted to be able to resume! Our rehearsals and concerts will begin from September onwards. We’ll be following all the current guidance with regard to COVID risks.


Saturday 2 October 7:00pm
After some 18 months of lockdown and other restrictions, we hope you will be join us at this concert to celebrate a return to live music-making. We are delighted to be singing in the newly-refurbished St Paul’s Church in Winchester, with a varied programme that illustrates the joy of singing and also commemorates those who have been adversely affected by the pandemic. >more details

The event involved about 750 singers from across the world (Asia, Africa and Europe) and took place in the Volkswagen Halle on Sunday, 11 September with an audience of more than 2500 .
