Voce Update

To our dear Choirbolical, 

Sotto Voce! (a spoken remark in a quiet voice)

In these weird isolation times, some might be finding it tough, or enjoying slowing down and for others, not really so different. VOCE has been thinking of you all and working with Matt to find ways we can replicate that good ‘ol Choirbolical joy feeling!!

We’re also mindful these times may be too much and you may not wish to engage so, feel free to withdraw this Term and, if you choose, request a refund for the Term. (contact Rob … [email protected])

However, if you can hold tight and watch this space over the break, you’ll see the little gem ideas coming together, our dreams into reality. BUT, we also need your thoughts so Leave a Reply at https://choirbolical.com/2020/03/27/choirbolical-check-in/ oremail/ phone a VOCE member!
