On behalf of all the committee here at UDCS, we would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to those who performed, and attended our concerts.
It was a great night of choral music, especially after our concerts had been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a choir, we have experienced quite the impact during the lockdowns over the past two years. Our rehearsals had shifted online, we couldn’t hear each other in unison – a benchmark of choral music, and we didn’t get a chance to gather for social events for quite some time.
Similar to other groups in the event industry, we were the first to shut down, and one of the last to get back in operation again. However, we never gave up. As a choir, we embraced this online shift and still went ahead.
In September 2021, we were optimistic that a concert could happen within the academic year. It was a time of uncertainty for all. We resumed rehearsals in October. Winter 2021 had proved challenging for all due to the rising cases. February 2022, we started back rehearsing.
In March, we were so proud to announce we would be performing again, after a 2 year in-person hiatus.
It is journeys like these that make these concerts so worth it. We are back, and will come back stronger in the next academic year, 2022 – 2023
On a special note, we’d like to extend our thanks to the friends, vice patrons, and the patrons of our society for supporting our society throughout the years, especially during the lockdown periods.
We look forward to seeing you all at our events.
