Playing on beyond Covid

Playing on beyond Covid

Season 2021/2022      Spring and Summer 2022    Current Arrangements

Since January 2022 we have continued to meet for ‘in-person’ rehearsals in our normal venue, The Edinburgh Society of Musicians, Belford Road, Edinburgh, from 7pm – 8.30pm. (This followed a year of Zoom online rehearsals.)

We continue to rehearse together and continue working with a protocol in place which requires 1m distancing and wearing of facemasks unless seated, as well other hygiene requirements. Hopefully this may relax during our  Summer term, although we will remain mindful of potential health issues.

The sessions are led by Michael Graham, our MD, and take the form of a warm-up to get us going followed by some work on the latest repertoire pieces we are developing. Members are informed in advance of the programme for each evening. At present we are rehearsing for 90 minutes with no tea break as previously.

Our Summer Term runs from Thursday April 28th until Thursday June 30th, 2022.  The current termly fee is £75 (50% rate for students).

All paid up members are linked into the email circulation system which keeps them up to date with rehearsal plans and developments, and they also have access to the downloadable music files arranged in parts in the private EMGO Dropbox.

New members are always welcome and this would be a very good time to join us as we refresh, re-new and re-visit music from our repertoire. You will be assured of a friendly welcome and support as you become familiar with our set up.

To get in touch please complete the online contact form and we will respond as quickly as we can.
