Northern Ireland schools told no singing allowed inside after Easter holidays
While choirs in England start to see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is a different story for our friends in Northern Ireland.
This article from ‘Belfast Live’ tells of the frustrating news that Education Minister Peter Weir has written to schools prohibiting all singing indoors, as well as playing of brass and woodwind instruments indoors.
This decision was made following advice for the Chief Medical Officer for Northern Ireland Dr Michael McBride in response to new variants of Covid-19. It is particularly frustrating for choir leaders as singing was permitted indoors from September to December 2020.
