Dear Members and Friends of SBCC,
It is with sadness that we are informing you that we will not be having regular weekly rehearsals again this fall. We have been told that the School District is not allowing any outside groups to have access to the Schools and therefore our rehearsal space.This was not a surprise to us. It has become clear from all the best medical opinions that singing in an enclosed space, especially where there is poor air exchange as is the case with our room, is especially dangerous with regard to COVID-19 spread.
The Board has had some discussions with Erik and he has some ideas for ways to keep us connected, albeit, over the internet. Not ideal, but perhaps worthwhile and enjoyable. He is anxious that we all not continue to lose ground with our vocalization. Obviously, we realize not everyone will feel comfortable connecting “virtually”, but it’s the best we can hope for at this time. Please be assured that as soon as he has solidified his plan, we will be sending out an announcement.
We hope you and yours are well and keeping your spirits up! We WILL be back together and making beautiful music again!
The South Burlington Community Chorus is an SATB chorus that was founded in 1973 and is partially funded by the South Burlington Recreation Department. There are no auditions to join our Chorus, and you do not have to be a South Burlington resident to join. The SBCC strives to create a community of singers who are committed to supporting one another to learn more about singing, have fun, and provide our audiences with quality performances.
Our Director is Erik Kröncke and our accompanist is Mary Jane Austin. To read more about us visit the ‘About Us‘ page!
