Please ensure you have read this Return To Rehearsal Risk Assessment Information before attending your next rehearsal.

General Information: Face Coverings & Singing:

We strive to be an inclusive choir. We share and provide information, to enable members to make their own choices.

The following information has been put together by Making Music; the UK’s largest leisure-time music representative.

The information does not indicate a stipulation or requirement for singing with Isle of Wight Cantata Choir. It is simply…for anyone wondering about the topic, for anyone who may find it helpful, for anyone considering how they may feel more comfortable in starting with, or returning to, choral singing, during this current time…for anyone seeking available products .

It is understandable to wonder: Should I consider wearing a face covering?  Why shouldn’t I wear one? , etc, etc.

It is considered that a range of measures reduces risk. Therefore, in addition to adequate ventilation and maintaining personal space – wearing a face covering while singing can be a practical measure, that can reduce the risk of spreading viruses in general (Covid-19, Norovirus, Flu, etc) and can enable singing in rehearsals, to be as safe as practically possible.

There is no doubt, that it is not ideal to sing in a mask, but it is possible – and it will reduce risk.

Masks that are designed specifically for singing, are available. Making Music, in collaboration with the Association of British Choral Directors has collated the following list:’
