The Music Department deeply regrets the postponement of its Chamber Choir Tour to Rome in July due to concerns related to COVID-19.

I am bitterly disappointed that it cannot go ahead this year and that the choristers won't have the opportunity to sing in such spectacular venues.  I am currently liaising with the tour provider and I hope to reschedule our tour for a similar time in 2021.  Any outstanding payments will not be required until March 2021.  I will do my utmost to make next year's tour an incredible experience for all involved.  I thank parents and choristers for their patience and understanding.

Current Year 13 choristers will be particularly disappointed about this news but they can still attend the tour in 2021 if they wish.  This, of course, will be a decision the Year 13 pupils and their families can make at an appropriate time.  I do not require a decision anytime soon.  

My thoughts are with everyone at this difficult time.  Stay safe.
