Joining the Choir
At any time throughout the season you may come and try us out for a few weeks, after which you will be asked to take a simple voice test prior to joining and paying a subscription. Our Conductor will give you advice about the level of musical ability expected and may recommend that you take singing lessons or change to another voice part. For more details on joining the choir, please contact our Secretary for New Members firstname.lastname@example.org The annual subscription has been set at £195.00 for the current season (Under 30 = £99.00). Currently this includes participating in four concerts; attendance at all regular rehearsals throughout the season; all hire of music and performance costs; a weekly information sheet and regular email postings about our activities. It does not include copies of the printed concert programme (currently at £3.00 per issue) or participation in our occasional Saturday Workshops (usually about £10.00 per head). Subscriptions can be paid in a single transaction which, if paid by 31stAugust, attracts a discount. Alternatively, you can pay in 3 equal instalments spread across the year. If you decide to join us, you will need to complete an application form to hand in at a rehearsal.
