Bristol Bach Choir have been carefully considering the risks of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on our activities, including our performance of ‘The Creation’ at St. George’s on Saturday 21st March.
In an attempt to act decisively as we seek to prioritise the health and well-being of the audience and performers, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our performance of ‘The Creation’ on 21st March. In making this decision, we have considered the potential risk to audience members and performers, many of whom are either categorised as vulnerable or who have direct contact with those who are most at risk. Following the transition into the second ‘delay’ phase of the government’s Coronavirus Action Plan, Bristol Bach Choir also believe there to be a significant probability that key performers could be forced to pull out of the concert at extremely short notice due to self-isolation.
We are sorry to disappoint all of those who were looking forward to attending our performance. We are very grateful to St. Georges and the Bristol Ensemble for working so quickly to find a date in the early autumn for the rearranged concert, and hope to welcome you all to our concert at 7.30pm on Sunday 13th September.
