Germans relax chorus rules

Four German states – Rhineland-Palatinate, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, North Rhine-Westphalia and Saarland – are starting to permit choral singing from next week.

All insist on three metres distance between singers and two of the states are limiting chorus size to ten.

All singers will be on test-and-trace and the rooms must be well aired.

Still, it’s a start.

  • In Wiesbaden, we‘ve been having Opera Chorus rehearsals since 20 May – in large rooms with 3 metres distance between singers (on all sides), and it has been working really well. We had to get used to the distance (a new way of listening to each other), but the main focus has been on learning new repertoire together. Musical work like voice balancing, etc. has to wait until everything is back to “normal” again – but at least we‘ve been trying to make the best of a strange and frustrating situation…
