Village Voices Spring Gloria Concert on Saturday 25th April Postponed

We are sorry to inform you that, after much discussion, Village Voices Management Committee has regretfully concluded that we must suspend rehearsals for the foreseeable future and postpone our Spring Concert at Deddington planned to be held at the Church of St. Peter & St. Paul, Church Street, Deddington OX15 0SA, near Banbury.

The choir intended to perform Vivaldi’s Gloria and sing a medley of songs from musicals including My Fair Lady and raise funds for Katharine House Hospice and for the Deddington Church Organ Fund. You may be interested in the the back story on My Fair Lady and the local connection.

This decision has not been taken lightly but, with the knowledge that the whole country could soon be in lockdown to some extent and the fact that the average age of our choir members and a number of our audience probably falls over the age considered to be ‘at risk’, we feel it is the responsible thing to do.
