Our first public performance this year is planned for Cae Glas Park, Oswestry.
The choir will hold a Sing in the Park event on the 21st June, our first performance planned for 2021.
Our fingers are crossed that rules will allow it to go ahead according to the current national plans for opening up on that Monday.
It will be from 7.30pm, and we are hoping that mid Summer's Day will provide good weather.
The choir has been rehearsing each week online and more recently in person.
There's no charge, so come along to Cae Glas Park in Oswestry where we'll be performing at the bandstand, as part of a national plan by Making Music to use as many bandstands around the country as possible on that day.

Cantiones is a mixed-voice chamber choir of enthusiastic singers, based in the Shropshire Market Town of Oswestry.
The choir performs three main concerts per year, and under the baton of Musical Director Martin Bussey, work hard to maintain a high standard of performance.
The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings in Oswestry.
We are regularly accompanied in rehearsals by our former musical director, of 17 years Gerry Howe who is also organist at St Oswald's and the well known Oswestry musician and former MD Chris Symons accompanies us in performance. The choir normally performs one or two substantive concerts a year and a popular carol concert at Christmas. The repertoire includes both sacred and secular music from the 16th to 20th century performed in up to 8 parts.
