First Rehearsal in St. Philips

Return to ‘live’ rehearsals

The choir return to full rehearsals in a new venue – St. Philip’s Church Center after an absence of 18 months. Our new venue has better acoustics, more space and ventilation to keep the choir safe. It’s been fantastic being able to get everyone together and to hear the massed voices of our members.
