Our introductory program

Come Sing with Us!

If you’re a woman with a pleasant, on-pitch voice and a desire to develop it, we’d love you to join us in our introductory program. Our How To Join page will give you details of how to book in.

Listen to some of our music
 

We run annual group introductory programs, as well as individual programs for those who wish to jump in and get started at other times. While you’re in the program, our membership team assigns a ‘Chorus buddy’ to support you. Our music team will ‘voice place’ you, which means they’ll recommend a voice part that most suits your vocal range and style. You’ll also be given sheet music and an audio file so you can learn the appropriate voice part in your own time at home.

There’s an audition process before progressing to membership, after a few weeks in the introductory program. It’s not a solo audition, you simply record yourself whilst singing with the whole chorus and this recording is evaluated. This is something we all do at various times through the year. Everyone appreciates the friendly feedback they need to sing their part smart and ensure the quality of our sound improves.

Once you’re a member, you’ll have access to our Chorus intranet – an easy to use, online one-stop-shop for all Chorus administration, calendar, contacts, music resources and educational materials. You keep up to date with our activities and your musical progress between rehearsals in your own time.

The Chorus is a volunteer organisation so we spread the many tasks amongst our members. This is a great way to get to know more people, use your skills and even learn some new ones!
