Chichester Music Society: University of Chichester Student Showcase Concert cancelled

29/04/2021

It is with real regret that I have to inform you that we are not able to proceed with our Student Showcase concert on Tuesday 20th May. Unfortunately, the committee has had a very low number of candidates and we do not feel that it is possible to proceed with the competition this year.

The continuing Covid crisis has made life very difficult for students at the university. Students are finding that it is difficult to rehearse with accompanists and prepare for their concerts and additionally the university has had to work remotely with its students for many weeks. Whilst we have had a number of auditions using video, there are simply not enough of them to make a proper event.

This is very disappointing news for all of us, especially as the situation created by the pandemic is at last improving for many of us in the UK and the rules relating to indoor public performance are being relaxed (although is was unlikely that we would be able to have a live audience for this event in any case). My apologies to all members and friends.
