Brighton Festival Youth Choir trustees have continued to review Government guidance and closely monitor COVID-19’s impact on Youth Choir rehearsals. The health and wellbeing of our members and staff remains our highest priority. When restrictions were temporarily eased in 2020, and in line with Government rules the Youth Choir took the opportunity of rehearsing in-person at the COVID-secure venue at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy. Strict Health and Safety protocols were observed to ensure COVID-secure rehearsals mitigated any possible transmission of the Coronavirus. During spring term 2021 whilst there was a national lockdown the Youth Choir reverted to virtual rehearsals using ZOOM’s internet platform. This ensured the choir continued to sing throughout the pandemic. Now restrictions have been eased, and inline with current Government guidance concerning out-of-hours activities the Youth Choir has returned to in-person rehearsals being held at the COVID-secure rehearsal venue Brighton Aldridge Community Academy, Falmer, Brighton.
