Chorus of East Providence Choral Season Postponed

Posted

The Chorus of East Providence has been singing for over 10 years together. The success of our community chorus has been singing weekly, socializing, giving concerts together, and sharing our love of music. The Board of Directors for this 100+ member chorus has met several times since the start of the pandemic to consider how we can continue singing. Sadly, COVID-19 presents too many risks at this time to organize for the fall semester. As such, COEP is announcing that we will not be starting rehearsals in September, a tradition going on 12 years now. While the chorus is still organizing some virtual meetings among members, and considering community service projects, the singing that brings us together is not planned for the fall. The Board will continue to discuss when it may be safe to start up again, in addition to exploring reasonable ways to work virtually. The Chorus of East Providence is grateful to St. Martha’s Church for their hospitality, and for all our supporters in the community.
