How to join the choir

  • Everyone over the age of 16 welcome, regardless of whether you read music or not
  • No need to audition
  • Friendly and informal atmosphere
  • Attend up to three rehearsals for free (we do ask you to return your music at the end of rehearsals until you have fully joined)
  • After that, you pay a membership fee and continue to sing with us - we're sure you will!
  • 16 - 25?  Become a member free of charge!
  • As with all good choirs, you need to be willing to do some practising at home.  We often have MP3/MIDI files to help you practise.
  • And punctuality and regular attendance are expected from all members.

Simply turn up 10 minutes before the start of any of our Wednesday rehearsals and ask for the Choir Membership Secretary.  We will make sure that you get some music, answer questions that you may have about joining and take your details.

Please note: Membership is ultimately at the discretion of the Musical Director (who may also require any member he finds insufficiently prepared not to sing in a public performance; such a decision would be made no less than 3 weeks before the performance). AND members who have not paid their subscription may not normally sing in concerts.
