WELCOME TO INVERNESS CHORAL SOCIETY
COVID-19 and its impact on Autumn 2020 term
Our committee met on Wednesday 20th May 2020, and, after a lengthy discussion, decided to cancel activities planned for the autumn term, including the November concert and the Carolthon. The statement from Angus Bethune, Chair, reads:We are very mindful that many of us are in what is considered the 'vulnerable' age category, and we do not wish to put any of our members in any situation of potential danger. Planning for a large gathering of people in close proximity is off the table for now, and, whilst the present state of lockdown is not going to be eased at the flick of a switch, it is sadly likely that 'normal' activities will take some time, and will have to be carefully considered, before resuming. It is of course possible that a cure for the Covid-19 virus will be found soon, but that presently seems unlikely.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and will keep you advised should there be any change. We hope you will understand, and that you continue to stay safe and well.
Inverness Choral Society is the largest choir in the Highlands of Scotland and draws singers from a wide area around Inverness. The Choral Society presents two main concerts every year, in Spring and Autumn. These usually take place at the impressive Eden Court Theatre in Inverness, and the concerts attract large audiences. The Inverness Choral Sinfonia frequently joins us in performances of the major choral works as well as lesser known choral music. Professional soloists always enjoy singing with us, whether they are well known names or talented singers at the start of their careers.
The conductor of the Inverness Choral Society is Gordon Tocher and the accompanist is Sheila Bruce.
