An update

Dear all,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the South Liverpool Orchestra concert on Tuesday 12th May, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the inevitable cancellation of all rehearsals until then. The orchestra currently plans to resume rehearsals on Tuesday 15th September, for our new season, at Liverpool Reform Synagogue.

Please continue to refer to Rob’s previous email (message also posted on the SLO Facebook) with guidance on continuing to keep to a regular instrumental practise routine at this time, perhaps using online resources/lessons too and watching online orchestral concerts. Obviously there is no need to return the SLO music yet whilst the Library is shut but do keep it safe as Paul will want it back eventually…! Our Christmas concert is likely to include much music originally scheduled for this May concert, with the addition of the usual audience carols and Christmas pieces. Therefore practice of the music you have remains relevant.

At this time it’s important we all keep in touch and support our membership. We’re very keen to ensure that all players return to SLO in September. After the current pandemic there will also be the opportunity to relaunch and welcome new players seeking a fresh start.

Take care & stay safe.

Every kind wish,
Rob & Laura
