With COVID restrictions largely being lifted, I'm extremely excited to get back to 'real life' rehearsing as soon as possible. Beginning on Sunday 5th September Paisly Sinfonia will be retiring to face to face rehearsals followed shortly by City of Carlisle Orchestra who are returning on Tuesday 7th September. Lomond and Clyde Community Orchestra will be back on 4th September as well. Can't wait!

I'll post any further updates here as they are confirmed.
