- Concert Dates and a Return to Rehearsals
We can’t wait to start rehearsing again, and we already have dates for our next four concerts at the Central Theatre in Chatham:
- Saturday 6th November 2021
- Saturday 12th February 2022
- Saturday 28th May 2022
- Saturday 12th November 2022
Further details will follow as soon as the repertoire has been decided.
- The Music Man
- John Georgiadis
It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of John Georgiadis on 5th January 2021. The string sections of CRSO were very privileged to have worked with John on many occasions.
- COVID 19 Restrictions
Regrettably while the Central Theatre in Chatham did open after the first lockdown, due to its age, structure and financial constraints the building was unable to comply completely with government policy for event venues. They had a restriction of 10 on stage – not quite sufficient for a Symphony Orchestra to perform!
We’re delighted to have found a COVID-safe venue for rehearsals. We had been planning to resume rehearsals on 9th November, until the second national lock-down was announced. We then hoped to rehearse again from Monday 7th December, but Tier 3 then Tier 4 and the third lockdown stopped us.
Until we can rehearse and perform together again, we are enjoying the creation of group recordings.
