A NEW START IN 2021-22

 
The Covid-19 pandemic has created huge challenges for choirs, but EV remained as active as possible through virttual rehearsals and a socially distanced professional recording in late 2020 of the new opera based on Sir Michael Palin's "The Weekend", created in partnership with Highbury Opera Theatre.
Early 2021 marked our return to the stage with an emotional and truly memorable performance of Mozart's Mass in C Minor with the Covent Garden Chamber Orchestra, at St Pancras' Church in central London.
The Weekend was successfully staged at the Bloomsbury Theatre in September 2021, setting us up beautifully for an exciting new season of singing and sharing.
