We welcome new joiners and have members across a wide age spectrum, so you’ll feel at home. We are open to singers in all voice parts, but in order to maintain a good balance of voices, we are currently targeting recruitment at tenors and basses.
Although we do not audition, the choir performs to a high standard and tackles some complex pieces which require a level of experience and musical ability. Rehearsals are relatively fast-paced, so may not suit complete beginners.
All prospective members are very welcome to come along and try us on one or more of three joining weeks at the beginning of each term (see below). Meanwhile, you can get a sense of the supportive style of our rehearsals from this feature and interview with our Director of Music and a number of choir members.
Subscriptions for the 2017/2018 season are on an annual basis, payable at the following rates:
*Joiners in the spring and summer terms will pay reduced rates.
Members are also required to purchase scores for the works being rehearsed. Full details will be provided to you on joining, and once you have a member login for the site, all information for each concert will be available in Members Info and Resources.
Joining opportunities for the 2017/2018 season are as follows:
Monday 4th September (start of term), Monday 11th September and Monday 18th September
Monday 8th January (start of term), Monday 15th January and Monday 22nd January
Monday 19th March (start of term), Monday 26 March and Monday 9th April (no rehearsal on 2 April, as it is Easter Monday)
