We will continue to have an online rehearsal option for as long as it is used and useful. The link remains the same every week and is available below.
I've left a copy of the agreement to the right here in case you need to check any details at any point. Please make sure you know the details and what is your responsibility.
I'm still working on various elements of streamlining - if there are processes that could be easier or smoother please do let me know, especially if you have ideas of how to improve these, so we can all spend minimum time on the admin side and maximum on the music and fun side!!

There are several people with support roles of different kinds in Palace Acappella Choir - below is a quick guide to who they are and their roles:
1) Laura Stevens - Co-Founded Palace Acappella with Eleanor in 2019 and has been a core part of the choir ever since. She supports Eleanor in an advisory capacity and represents the choir in her absence, and contributes to key projects and events.
2) Holly Jennings - Social Media Manager. She does all our social media posting and will periodically take photos/videos in rehearsals, encourage you to write on the whiteboard etc. Please send her any pictures of choir stickers in unusual and interesting locations, choir T-shirts in unexpected places, or choir members attending non-choir related local events!
3) Choir Ambassadors - Catherine, Gaynelle, Geraldine, Kay, Lenny and Margaret have offered to be our inaugural Ambassadors for 3 months initially to test this idea out. They will keep a special eye on newbies and people coming for taster sessions, and also be a discrete support for any choir members wanting to raise ideas, questions or concerns (if you don't want to bring them direct to me). They will generally be wearing choir T-shirts at rehearsals so they are easy to find, and you can contact them by email and WhatsApp if you want to discuss anything outside of rehearsal.
