Choir News July 2020: Coronavirus.
We are unable to rehearse at the moment but we are joining together to make music virtually each Monday evening.

Below are documents and links to documents that you might find useful. Click on any of the blue text and a document or link will open up for you to see.

Normal rehearsals have been suspended for the time being (August 2020) but throughout lockdown we have holding virtual rehearsals, a music club and "pub" time for its members every Monday evening via zoom software and through the summer holiday period we have found ways of keeping members in touch with one another. Please contact: enquiries@dorchesterchoral society.org for more information about our plans.
