Join Us

If you love to sing we would love to hear from you!

Why not come and give us a try?

You are welcome to attend some rehearsals to try us out at any time of the year.  If you do decide to join, you would usually do so at the start of a new concert rehearsal schedule: our season begins in September and we aim to perform at least three concerts a year (autumn, spring and summer).

Some experience of reading music and singing in parts would be helpful, but a variety of learning aids are available if needed.  We do not hold auditions, but you would be expected to meet informally with the Musical Director to agree your voice type and discuss any support you feel you might need. Although we take our singing seriously we also aim to have a lot of fun along the way!

Rehearsals

These are held on Tuesdays at Temple Methodist Hall from 7.30 – 9.30pm with a half time break for tea, cake and conversation!  There is plenty of street parking and car parks nearby. Please remember to complete the attendance register when you arrive and inform us about planned absences.  A final rehearsal with orchestra and soloists is held on the afternoon of the concert at the venue.

Subscriptions

The annual subscription is £100 (£10 for students), and is due at the beginning of September. This includes the cost of music hire. If this would be a problem for you, please speak to our Treasurer in confidence. We always do our best to help. You will see from our Contact details form that we encourage all members who are eligible to Giftaid their subscription to help boost our finances.

What should I do next?

Should you have any further questions or would like to give us an informal try, please email our Membership Secretary, Gail Cryer.  Alternatively you can complete and send our Contact Details form and we will contact you to arrange your start date.  Please note that aside from at rehearsals, our main method of communication with the choir is via email and our website.
