After the past few weeks of mastering the technology of being a virtual choir and learning the 1st movement of the Gloria, the Basing Singers and Ooh Ma Ma are proud to present their first Virtual Piece, and we are already working on our next offering. This is a result of 35 singers recording in isolation, adding a Virtual Orchestra and then fitting it all together! We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we have enjoyed putting it all together. The virtual Choir has been made up of: Sopranos Angela Caroline Carolyn Cerys Eileen Hazel B Kate B Kate O’N Rose Rose C Rowena Sue B Sue D Susan M Altos Alison Charis Claire Claire C Jill Karen Nicky Sue D Tanya Tenors Adam Pete Robert Stuart Tim Basses Alan John Mike J Mike L Mike P Robert Stuart
It is with much regret that it has been necessary to cancel this year’s Village Pantomime, which the Basing Singers get involved with. Although the performances were not until late November, rehearsals would have start fairly soon and, with no clear direction on how we are going to move out of lockdown, let alone when, the only sensible decision was to cancel. At the time of writing it is understood that the Panto is now planned for the last weekend in November 2021.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Basing Singers have had to postphone all concerts planned for this year. We will post a further news update here about the rescheduled dates once we are out of lockdown and have a better understanding of how we can safely stage future concerts.
