Blue Sky Harmony Returns to Rehearsals

With no recent community transmission of COVID-19 in Brisbane, we decided to go back to in-person rehearsals in our regular venue on the 2nd of July. As we are a small chorus based in a very large hall, we can take appropriate precautions to minimise the risk of transferring the virus, such as sanitising hands on entry and exit, maintaining appropriate physical distance throughout the rehearsal, and keeping all doors and windows open. We are lucky that Brisbane generally has mild winters, as we would otherwise freeze!

The downside of this new setup is that we can hear the trains loud and clear as they rattle past, but it is a small price to pay for being able to join our voices together again to create beautiful harmonies. We've spent our first rehearsals back learning a new song for a very special occasion later this year, and we're making the most of our precious time together in case we need to go back into isolation again.  

At this stage, we're opening our doors to visitors, including potential new members, from the 6th of August onwards.  We would love to have some new singers join us as we continue our musical journey. For more information about singing with us, visit our Becoming a Member page.

We know that not all singing groups are as fortunate as us, and are maintaining online rehearsals for the foreseeable future.  We send our love to all those groups, and wish them strength until they can safely sing together again.
