We have been carefully monitoring evolving Government guidance in relation to COVID-19 for many months, as well as examining research and advice for performing groups including orchestras and choirs. We have also been continually liaising with management at our venues, medical experts, school principals and other stake holders.
Based on the information we currently have, and in order to protect our Peace Proms community from the spread of COVID-19, we have taken the necessary decision to suspend all planned Peace Proms live choir workshops and performances until further notice.
At the moment it is difficult to envisage being able to safely hold live Peace Proms workshops or concerts during this academic year. However, we will continue to monitor Government and Health guidance with will not rule out the possibility of holding a live performance/performances towards the end of the school year.
In the meantime…….
