Corona Virus Outbreak
Suspension of the Choral Society's Activities Until Further Notice
Clackmannanshire Choral Society (Clacks Choral) has, with regret, decided to cancel its Spring Concert in light of concerns arising from the current Corona Virus outbreak.
The choir has been rehearsing since early January for its annual Spring Concert which was to be held on Saturday 25th April 2020, but with the virus starting to spread in the UK it was decided not to give it the opportunity to infect people at choir rehearsals or at a concert - all of which which have been well attended in previous years.
Viv Fairchild, Choir President said:
“As the Corona Virus can spread in areas where many people come into close contact, it would have been irresponsible to ignore the potential threat. In the interests of safety, the Committee has taken the difficult decision to cancel the Spring Concert as well as the remaining rehearsals for this season.
"We hope that our audience will understand that we have a duty of care to them as well as to the choir members, so we will not take any risks with regard to their health. We look forward to entertaining them at future concerts.”
This means that all remaining rehearsals for the Spring Concert, which normally would take place every Monday night at 7.00pm in St Mungo’s Parish Church, Bedford Place, Alloa , will now not take place.
It is hoped that once the threat of the Corona virus has gone, rehearsals for the annual Christmas Concert will begin. A future announcement will be made with regard to the date.
