If you’re at all interested in joining us, you would be most welcome to come along for a few weeks to our Monday evening rehearsals to see how you get on. You would be made to feel very much at home and given as much support as you need. Then, if you wish, you can apply to join us properly – which, as with most choirs, involves an audition. In our case, this is just a short, informal voice test to check that you can sing reasonably in tune and in time, that your chosen voice part is correct (ie soprano, alto, tenor or bass) and that you have some rudimentary music-reading skill and/or the capacity to learn the music by ear through rehearsing it a few times. So just turn up (Monday evenings 7.45pm – 9.45pm at St Albans Church Hall, The Ridgeway, North Harrow) or, if you wish, contact our Honorary Membership Secretary Jill Mans for more information - tel: 020 8248 7625.
However, if you feel that you would benefit from some tuition, or perhaps revision, before applying to join the main choir, we do have a highly successful “training choir” called Singing for Starters. It involves a 1 year course in singing – one day per week - under the brilliant tutelage of Hilary Musgrave, covering all the skills needed to join a performing choir. Follow the link to find our more.
If you would like to be involved in the choir without having to actually sing, you may like to consider becoming a “Friend”. Subscription is only £15 but provides significant and very welcome support. Friends are entitled to a reduction in seat prices for certain concerts, advance bookings, invitations to social events, and a copy of our regular newsletter. Please contact Colette Quirk if you would like to consider becoming a Friend.
