Pakefield Singers Together in Harmony
Pakefield Singers – Together in Harmony
Yes, we really are back!
and preparing for our next concert:
2020 was a year like no other for everyone, including Pakefield Singers, but we can look back with satisfaction at what we have achieved and forward with optimism that we will be inviting you to a concert in the not-too-distant future.
During the nine months of Covid lockdowns and restrictions the choir has continued to meet regularly, either online or in person. We made two Lockdown videos (watch via the links below) which raised money for our local hospital, sang together at two Beach Picnics in the summer and at outdoor rehearsals on three glorious afternoons in September. We resumed modified indoor rehearsals in October and members of the choir also featured in the Lowestoft First Light Festival’s celebration of the Winter Solstice. (Click the link to watch the performance).
2020 was not quite the year we had planned and unfortunately 2021 didn’t start well and we were back to rehearsing via Zoom. We are now able to rehearse again but with strict measures in place to reduce the risks and are excited to be able to share our music with you once again.
It was heartening to welcome so many of you to the outdoor concert and hope to see you again later in the year when we perform Mozart’s Requiem in St Mary’s Church, Halesworth, on November 13th.
