Dear Abingdonians

Today is the day when the 23rd Abingdon Summer School for Solo Singers would have started. Alas, it was not to be this year, and whilst we are sad about that, we are infinitely sadder for all those aspiring singers who have been deprived of the opportunity to sing, and in many cases their livelihoods, during the lockdown.

The pandemic has been a severe shock to the whole artistic and performing community, and there is no knowing how long it will be before things get back to any kind of normality. But we fully intend to hold the Summer School in a year’s time, and meanwhile we send you our very best wishes for the coming months.

If you can, keep singing, keep learning and we look forward to seeing some of you at Abingdon 2021.

Henry and Lindsay Herford
