Calgary Boys’ Choir COVID-19 Protocols
As of Aug 31, 2021:
All members are to remain masked upon entrance to Knox Presbyterian Church, throughout all singing and breaks. In order to unmask, participants must be outdoors. Directors are welcome to take their choirs outdoors for as many mask breaks as necessary.
All members will be sufficiently physically distanced from each other. This means at least one meter in between each chorister, and possibly even two meters if space allows.
Rehearsals may take place outdoors, at the discretion of each director. If rehearsal is outdoors, participants may be unmasked, provided physical distancing is observed at all times
All high touch areas (door handles) will be sanitized periodically throughout the evening. The general manager will keep track of this.
All boys must sanitize (or wash their hands with soap and water) upon entering the building and prior to any breaks.
Indoor rehearsals must have a minimum break of ten minutes every fifty minutes. In this break, participants must clear the room.
Enhanced ventilation has been added to the system at Knox Presbyterian Church.
Any windows in the rehearsal rooms will be opened for the duration of rehearsal to further enhance ventilation.
Participants will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening questionnaire prior to coming to rehearsal as well as a health check at the door when they arrive.
Any families where a participant has come down with COVID-19 will be required to report this case to CBC, CBC will then in turn share information with families that their child may have been exposed.
All current Calgary Boys’ Choir staff are fully vaccinated for COVID-19
All parent volunteer monitors will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19
We will continue to monitor what school boards in our area are doing, as this is most likely our best guide at good practices as things continue to develop.
Weekly Wednesday rehearsals take place at Knox Presbyterian Church,
3704 37 St SW, Calgary, AB T3E 3C3
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Our family has been so appreciative of how the Calgary Boys' Choir has been able to adapt to the changing conditions during the pandemic - to ensure that our son continues making and learning music with and for his community. From physically distanced outdoor rehearsals when public health restrictions allowed, to utilizing technology to hold online rehearsals and share performances, as needed. The efforts of the CBC have contributed greatly to our ability to live life well during all of this, and keep us connected as a community.
Chorister- Gentlemen's Choir
The thing I enjoyed about the boy's choir was how easy they made it to learn in the environment. I also enjoyed how much individual attention everyone got compared to other choirs.
Through all the challenges this year has brought, I have been inspired by the resolve of the Calgary Boys’ Choir to keep the music alive. Through both in person and virtual sessions, the choir has provided my son with much needed social interaction with friends, continued musical training, and most importantly the gift of song. Thank you Calgary Boys’ Choir for keeping our boys singing! -Tina M
