And we’re back!

We are delighted to announce that Kerry Choral Union will be returning to rehearsals on Wednesday, October 6. As we’re not quite out of the woods yet though in terms of all things pandemic, we will be taking a number of measures to provide a safe and reassuring return.

  1. For a short while at least, we will be rehearsing in St. Brendan’s Church, Tralee. This will allow us to maintain proper social distancing and good ventilation.
  2. We will require you to present either your vaccination cert or a medical cert showing that you have had Covid-19 at the door.
  3. You will be required to fill in a Covid-19 self-declaration before entering rehearsal, copies of which have been sent to members.
  4. We will be social distancing. Seats will be marked, and you are asked not to move around the church once seated and also that you not share pens, pencils, music, sweets etc.
  5. Masks will be worn while singing. We are in the process of having special singing masks made, but until they are ready, please bring a mask with you. Singing masks are designed so that they don’t pop off the nose or chin and they are structured to hold the fabric away from the mouth which means better sound quality and you don’t get a mouthful of fabric every time you breathe in.
  6. We will also have hand sanitiser available.

We know that it’s all quite different from before and may even sound a little onerous but if we can manage this return safely and then adjust as the situation requires throughout the winter, we could be singing on through to Easter happily and safely.

Rehearsal will begin at 7:30 pm but the doors will be open at 7 pm so do come early.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

On behalf of the committee of Kerry Choral Union
