During the Coronavirus outbreak, we have replaced the usual rehearsals by online sessions. They will not be formal rehearsals because latency and transmission delays make a normal rehearsal impractical. Instead, we will just get together, chat around a little, probably about guitar-related stuff, and perhaps play a bit of music if someone fancies that. We will start at the usual time on the scheduled dates, but sessions will probably be rather shorter, perhaps an hour or so, depending on whether we have much to chat about and whether anyone wants to play. Very informal: you can drop in and drop out to suit your Sunday lunch schedule. After 40 minutes or so, there may well be a brief break for tea, coffee, biscuits … and a new Zoom session. If you want to come along, check in the members’ area “What’s New?” for a link to the next meeting. Non-members can email us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We hope to be back for normal rehearsals by autumn at the latest.
Usually, the CGO has rehearsals approximately every 2 to 3 weeks during the academic year (with a break during the summer holiday period). We usually meet on a Sunday (dates below), 2pm to 5:15pm.
Since January 2019, our normal rehearsal location is Foxton Village Hall, 2 Hardman Rd, Foxton, Cambridge CB22 6RN (note: it is the Foxton in Cambridgeshire, not Foxton South Leicestershire…). Here are directions for getting to Foxton.
Contact us if you’re interested in coming along to see what we do.
