ALL THE CONCERTS OF THE 2020-21 SEASON HAVE BEEN CANCELLED
BECAUSE OF THE COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.
The 13th June outdoor concert in
Havering is also officially cancelled.
As a consequence, we are currently planning to hold a
socially-distanced rehearsal and playthrough session in St John's Waterloo, on the afternoon of
June 12th. The
program is as shown below, and limited by the 60 or so
people we are allowed to have at one time in St Johns...
We would like to cover the costs of putting on the day,
so we are encouraging players to make a voluntary
contribution of around £10 per person, unless you have already
kindly paid part or all of this
year's WPO subscription.
Please pay this in advance into the
orchestra's bank account.

folding chairs, and they must be wiped down afterwards.
Players should bring their own stands, no stand sharing
(strings). Sufficient parts will be available.

We cannot realistically use the green chairs because we
would need to provide, and use, a special fabric sanitiser.
There will be a one way system in the church and the side doors will be
open for exit.
Wear a mask until you sit down, and
it back on again to move around.
Please help to clear up at 18:00.
