“We work hard and have a good time.”



  • All members of the Pendle Hill Chorus are required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Booster shots are not required, though strongly encouraged. Bring your vaccination card to the first rehearsal, or e-mail a photograph ahead of time to (Subject heading: PHC-VAX).
  • “Fully vaccinated” means at least 2 weeks after receiving the second shot of an MRNA Vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) or 2 weeks after the single shot of the Johnson & Johnson.
  • If you have a medical exemption, you are welcome to participate under these conditions:
    1. Prior to the first rehearsal, provide proof of the medical exemption certified by a licensed physician.
    2. Provide the results of a “negative” PCR test taken within 48 hours of arriving.
    3. Bring your certification and test result to the first rehearsal, or e-mail a photograph ahead of time to (Subject heading: PHC-VAX).

Masks are required indoors – KN95 or KF94

Participants are encouraged to take a COVID test of any type (i.e., PCR, rapid, at home) before the first rehearsal, and at any time you may feel symptoms. If the test result is “positive,” or if flu or cold-like symptoms persist, please stay home and get well.

The Waiver & Screening form collects contact information in a way that would be useful for any necessary contact tracing. It asks for affirmation that you:

  • have provided proof of vaccination and that you have not recently tested “positive.”
  • will cooperate with all COVID-19 safety measures in place for rehearsals and concert.

The link to the form will be e-mailed before the first rehearsal for you to submit online.
