Aberdeen Bach Choir


Because of the current high level of Covid infections, and because High Church Hilton has suspended public attendance at services, the committee has decided to cancel the first four weeks of Spring term rehearsals, due to begin on Tuesday 11 January 2022. A further update will be given in early February.
