For young people and adults over the age of 11 a short relaxed audition is required. In the audition the chorister will be asked to sing a song of their own choosing, this can be anything they are comfortable with, and the Artistic Director will go through their voice part range. The audition takes about 5 minutes and is followed by a chat with the chorister, and if required the parent/guardian about the most suitable choir placement. Please contact the choir office to arrange a time. Rehearsals are Thursdays in term time.
Contact the office to arrange a visit to the rehearsals of our Male Vocal Group. Rehearsals are Thursdays in term time.
