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

Alternatively, you can pay in 3 equal instalments spread across the year. In addition to scheduled rehearsals, we run occasional Sunday Workshops, open to members and non-members alike.
