Like so many music groups, we abruptly ceased rehearsals in March.  A planned String Playing Day was abandoned.

We commenced rehearsals on a virtual basis in April.  This has been focused on our string players, and we have been fortunate in having string coaches who helped navigate the world of playing via Zoom, whilst recording guide tracks to allow us to practise.

The string players' focus has been on Haydn's String Quartet Op 75 no 1.  We recorded this in July.
