Viewing a virtual performance

Usually in advance of the concert date you will receive a hyperlink to a webpage you'll visit to view the performance. Do check that you have this and click the link to confirm that it works ahead of the concert. You'll most likely be guided to a page indicating that you're in the correct place and to return on the date / time that the performance is scheduled for.

Finding a Covid-secure rehearsal venue

You might be thinking ahead to when your group can meet again in person, but a major issue will be finding somewhere to rehearse.

In the next 6 to 12 months your rehearsal venue probably needs to be Covid-19 secure, large enough to allow 2-metre spacing between singers or players, well-ventilated, with wifi and/or good lighting for videoing or blended rehearsals – and affordable. Below we've collected together some ideas to help you find a suitable venue.

Planning online activity

Whether you moved online back in the spring or are just starting to tackle it now, we have produced some template documents to help you plan a programme of online activities. They include resource planners, an overview plan and detailed plans for each week.

Celebrating the Christmas season with your group

With the pandemic still present in our lives, many of us will be missing our usual, seasonal music celebrations whether it’s attending a local carol service, singing or playing in a festive performance or Christmas social events. To help recreate some of these, and find alternative ways to celebrate the holiday season we have pulled together some ideas from our members to help inspire you and keep musical activities thriving at Christmas. 

COVID-19: Can my group get back to in-person activities?

Guidelines covering how music groups can get back to rehearsing and performing are being published in the different nations of the UK: 

COVID-19 safety guidance poster templates

To help music groups plan a safe return to rehearsals when restrictions start to lift, we have created some Covid-19 safety poster templates that you can put up around your venue to remind members of the current safety guidelines. Below you will find four poster templates for groups, all of which can be customised and branded with your own logo.
