As we were unable to rehearse during the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restriction of 2020/21 we kept ourselves entertained and in touch with each other in various ways. We had: weekly quizzes, led by a different person each week; weekly Sunday Night Proms led by a few different members, where we shared videos of us playing to a given theme and we stayed in touch using social media, (facebook, whatsapp and emails.)
For Christmas 2020, we were able to give an outside rendition of a few carols, with no actual audience present, at Richmond Retirement Village. This gave a great boost in spirits to our members and hopefully also to our many hidden listeners.
We also made a couple of compilation videos using music adapted for us by our musical director. Please note that the editing of the videos is very much a learning curve!
Summertime – for the Summer Solstice, June 20 1920 – Amazing Grace and a band favourite, Bring Me Sunshine.
