Now that we have covered what we can do, let’s talk about what we can’t. While there is immense uncertainty as to what this semester holds for all of us at the University, we do know that we can’t rehearse or perform in person. This unfortunately has led to the cancelling of our Annual Dinner in November and our Christmas Concerts. We are discussing ways among our leaders of providing a virtual Christmas offering to you.
Currently, the University has committed to enforcing a maximum gathering size of fifteen persons, whether on Grounds or off. Additionally, were we to try to hold smaller sectional rehearsals outside and socially distant, not only would the acoustics make rehearsing incredibly difficult, but we would also be running into risks with exposure time limiting any rehearsal time to under 30 minutes. It is simply a challenging, developing situation, and we will keep you updated as much as possible. It is unanimous that we all want to sing together as soon as we can ensure the health and safety of our guys and the University of Virginia and Charlottesville communities.
