Ashford Sinfonia community orchestra is based in Ashford, Kent and meets on Mondays at the church of St Mary the Virgin, Bentley Road, Willesborough, Ashford, Kent TN24 0LB. New members are welcome to join us at 7.15 p.m. ready for 7.30 to play classical and popular orchestral music. Please bring a music stand as well as your instrument!
At last we have sight of being able to gather again! At the moment June 21st looks likely to be the date from which we can get back to something like normality. Our committee met on 10th May and discussed the results of our Making Music survey, and made plans based on the results. We are actively communicating with the church to regain access, and it is great to say that they have kept our slot for us and will welcome us back when ready.
We have agreed that, subject to rules at the time, we will have a social evening at Yew Tree House on Monday 28th June at 7 p.m., and aim to restart rehearsals after that – Gill has kindly agreed that we can fit in 5 meetings, the last being on 2nd August.
Needless to say, we will need to start gently, as many will not have played much over the past year, and certainly not with others! Before anything starts though, we will conduct our own Risk Assessment, and implement whatever we feel necessary to minimise any risks. The church will have done the same.
