September 10 will mark Chichester Chamber Concerts' return following the pandemic. They will hold a concert on September 10 from the Trinity Ensemble, which was rescheduled from March 26. However, the season proper will officially open on October 1 and they will hold concerts once a month until March.
In order to follow social distancing protocols in place, seats in the Assembly Room will be limited to just 40. The tickets are available from Chichester Festival Theatre and can be ordered by post or online. Telephone or in-person bookings are currently not allowed until further notice. To make up for reduced audience numbers, the concerts will be live-streamed by MD Music Production directors David Greenlees and Mark Mawson.
Series chairman Anna Hill said: "David is also a very, very good viola player so he understands exactly what is needed that the audio quality had to be very, very high. I am confident they are going to do a very good job."
Explaining how the concerts will go amid the pandemic, Anna said she does not believe that people will be cautious to attend in person. "The people who are nervous will obviously stay at home. I think it is going to be terribly important for the smaller audiences and for the players. The players have been denied playing to a live audience for months now. I am sure they are really looking forward to it, and I think people will be terribly keen to come. I went to a similar concert by the Hanover Band in Arundel, and there was a great atmosphere. People were just thrilled to be hearing live music for the first time in months and also just to see each other and talk."
