Choir: Lockdown Blues

Starting online from 26 June…

The Lockdown Blues Songbook

Due to a certain virus, live choirs will need to be suspended for Term 3. However that doesn’t mean we can’t sing together.

The on-line Corona Choir will re-start from 26 July, joining each other every week by Zoom, learning new songs, making recordings together and keeping in touch.

Rob and the Corona Band will prepare a list of fun songs - the Lockdown Blues Songbook.

Each person will record their voice singing them, and Rob will put the recordings together so we can hear the sound of a choir. Like last year, we’ll make videos too – see

You’ll need to set up a recording app – more information coming for those who are registered.

Maybe you don’t like Zoom, but this experience is a bit different. Sign up and if after the first night it’s not for you there’s a full refund. What have you got to lose?

No experience necessary, just come sing along.
