Would you enjoy singing with a friendly group of like-minded
who enjoy making good music together?
Must I be able to read music? It's not essential,
an ability to read music is a definite plus.
Do you audition? If, after you've attended a couple
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 Free
Church, Chorleywood (Hillside Road, no more than a 5-minute
walk from Chorleywood station).
I may have to skip some rehearsals. That's okay, but
you have to miss more than a couple of rehearsals for a given concert
(or rehearsals immediately before a concert) the musical director
may ask you to stand down from the 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, professional accompanists, etc. The current
rate is £50 per term (£150 p.a.), inclusive
of music scores and workshops.
