Cost

The cost for the term is £90 (15 hours of rehearsals, music and end-of-term performance).

Please note that the cost of the term is fixed regardless of when you join, we do not offer a pro rata rate or pay-as-you-go option, or refunds for missed sessions.

A limited number of bursaries are available for adults aged 18+ who would like to attend the choir but due to their financial situation are unable to do so. We are particularly interested in awarding bursaries to singers where participation will have a positive impact on individuals’ physical or mental health. To apply, please complete the online bursary application form.

Is there an age limit?

There’s no upper age limit, but we can only take singers aged 18 and over at present.

What music will we be singing?

I aim to offer a really rich variety of music, from folk songs to classical, to pop, to jazz and everything else. As a conductor I am reactive to the size, abilities and tastes of the group — each choir should have its own personality which is a combination of yours and mine.

What practice will I need to do in between rehearsals?

You will need to put in a little bit of time (an hour a week, spread over 7 days, is less than 10 minutes a day) to memorise words etc. There is usually a little bit of homework to revise a couple of songs to ensure we are making progress at each rehearsal.

I’ve never sung before, can I join?

Everyone aged 18+ is welcome. There are no auditions and you don’t need to have any previous singing experience. You’ll find that you pick things up as you go along and develop skills naturally. If you’re not used to singing regularly you’ll see an improvement in your voice after your first month or so. We always spend 15 minutes at the start having a good vocal warm up which may also include things like a bit of sight-reading practice, vocal techniques and ear training. If you are an experienced singer – great – I’ll be sure to throw some more challenging things your way and be really encouraging you to sing with good technique!
