  2. ADORAMUS BERLIOZ CONCERT CANCELLED

Extract from Adoramus website:

Saturday 30th November 2019 at 7.30pm

Adoramus Choir and Orchestra are sorry to have to inform you that our BERLIOZ 150 concert is having to be cancelled by Latymer School due to the break down of their heating system. This situation is beyond our control, and we have even tried to re-locate the concert but to no avail. The school is having to close over this weekend to allow engineers complete access to rectify the situation. We are in the process of investigating the financial implications of this and how we best refund people who have already purchased tickets. With huge disappointment on behalf of us all

The ECS Ticket Levy

Obviously it’s a high priority to sell as many tickets as possible for our concerts, and we depend a lot on members for this.   Some amateur choirs insist on members buying a certain number of tickets for each concert, whether or not they can sell them. The ECS levy is a lot gentler.  Every memberContinue Reading
