OnJanuary 5th, 2022, Ontario imposed tighter pandemic restrictions including the closure of arts venues as well as gathering limits for groups such as choirs. These were in effect well into February. Our January-February rehearsals were exclusively on ZOOM. In-person rehearsals resumed Mar 1, with ZOOM participation still an option. The season has been extended to May 10, 2022. Rehearsals on March 29 and April 19 will be fully on ZOOM due to circumstances beyond our control.
