Coronavirus update – Rehearsals cancelled

Update: 16th March 2020

To our purple family,

It is with great sadness that I and the Committee have taken the decision to cancel rehearsals with immediate effect. We will not be meeting tomorrow and all rehearsals are cancelled for the rest of this term.

It has become increasingly apparent that this would be inevitable. I had hoped that we could continue meeting for a few more weeks as I know the next months are going to be very difficult for us all and even more so without our normal routines. However, following the latest announcement by the Prime Minister this evening we must follow the advice which is there to help protect us all.

I wish everyone all the best during this difficult time. I will miss you all and I hope that we meet again very soon. We will keep you regularly updated as best we can.

Keep safe everyone and keep on singing wherever you are.

New term starts 11th September – New members welcome

It has been a long summer but we will be starting back with rehearsals next Tuesday 11th September.

If you have ever thought of joining, why not come along and see what we are all about? We are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year and have several exciting events coming up between now and Christmas that you could be part of. The start of the new terms is an ideal time to join us as we start learning our new pieces.

We are a friendly bunch and meet on Tuesday evenings during school term times from 7 to 8:30pm at Oxhey Wood Primary School. We ask for a recommended subscription fee of £40 per term with reduced rated available on request but you can come and try us out for the first two weeks for free. All singing abilities are welcome (even if you think you can’t sing a note).

So why wait, come along next Tuesday and for a fun evening of singing.

10th Anniversary Gala – Photos

What an evening! We had a wonderful time on Saturday at our 10th Anniversary Gala Event.

We welcomed friends both old and new plus a few local dignitaries.

We had speeches from our Chair, Christine Wyard, and musical director, Simon Wookey and the premier of our new short film, “Thank you for the Music”.

This was followed by a superb hog-roast.

And of course we finished the evening the only way the South Oxhey Choir could with a rousing performance of our favourite hits from the last 10 years.

What a lot we have achieved over the last 10 years – what will the next 10 years bring?
