The year has ended for the members of Eltham Concert Band, but the committee are busy planning for next year. With the current easing of restrictions we are hopeful that we will be able to start rehearsing at the beginning of February. we have booked the Hall for then, but still need to prepare a Covid Safe plan, and to get agreement with the Halls staff. We may start with a restricted number of attendees if that is all that is allowed, but we will do our best to return as soon as we can. The Hall has been booked for concerts in May and October. We hope we will be able to perform for both, but we will have to wait and see.
What did we do in 2020:
- 5 normal rehearsals at the start of the year, though the last one was of only half length. The second half was just a meeting to call of future rehearsals
- 2 short rehearsals for 20 members of the band only. These were at the end of June, and just before the lockdown.
- Countless Zoom meetings when we would normally have rehearsed
- A recording for a Virtual Warrandyte Carols. This had only 12 members taking part. This was on 1st December.
2021 has got to be better.
