The Exeter Bach Society's rehearsal activity has been risk assessed and is Covid-19 secure due to risk reducing measures put in place such as face coverings, ventilation breaks and physical distancing of 2m. These measures ensure the risk of contracting Covid-19 is as low as reasonably practicable. However, it is noted that there will be members who may not feel comfortable rehearsing in person and therefore, where this is the case, you are encouraged to join us through a live stream which will be sent out in advance of each rehearsal.
Our risk assessment for rehearsals is available in the members' area or by request for non-members. We are working to resume rehearsals as soon as the restrictions from the current national lockdown in England are lifted on 2 December 2020. This resumption will be subject to the new tier system put in place and the tier level of Exeter.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Exeter Bach Society, we are a mixed-voice (SATB) choir specialising in the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. Three concerts are performed each year with orchestral / soloist support as required from some of the best professional musicians in the South West and further afield. Additionally we host instrumental / vocal recitals, talks by acclaimed speakers and an annual public choral workshop with a conductor of national repute. Importantly, also, we are one of the very few choirs which still performs J S Bach’s cantatas in their original format as a part of a church service.
We look forward to welcoming newcomers and established friends alike to our concerts and events in 2021.
