Joining the Choir

Would you enjoy singing with a friendly group of like-minded people who enjoy making good music together?

Must I be able to read music?

Not essential, although an ability to read music is a definite plus.

Do you audition?

If, after you've attended a couple of rehearsals, you decide to join the choir, you'll be invited to sing a short piece of your choice for the musical director. This informal voice test is just to check that you can sing acceptably well (in tune and in time; virtuoso performances not required!), and to ensure that you're assigned to the right part in the choir.

When and where are rehearsals?

We rehearse Tuesday evenings, 19:50–22:00, during school term, at the Hillside Centre, Chorleywood (Hillside Road, no more than a 10-minute walk from Chorleywood station).

I may have to skip some rehearsals.

That's okay (of course!), although if you have to miss several rehearsals for a particular concert (especially rehearsals immediately before the concert), then the musical director may ask you to stand down from that performance.

What does it cost?

Like all amateur choirs, we have to raise a subscription to cover the costs of our rehearsal and performance venues, musical director, professional accompanists, etc. The current rate is £180 per annum, inclusive of music scores and workshops.
