Are you thinking of joining us? We welcome applications from singers and aim to be as inclusive as possible.
Rehearsals are hard work but Harry (Music Director) and Colin (accompanist) make the time rewarding and enjoyable. There are eight sections: 1stand 2nd basses, 1st and 2nd tenors, 1st and 2nd sopranos and 1st and 2nd altos. We have six Section Leaders who act as first point of contact for our members and liaison with the committee.
As well as our regular concerts we have organised several tours abroad and hold occasional social events and workshops.
Members need to be able to sing well and in tune, and to follow a score, as our repertoire can be quite demanding. Sight reading is helpful. However, we do not have formal auditions as we know this can be a bit of a deterrent!
If you would like to join, we invite you to sing with us for two or three weeks to find out whether our choir is right for you. Once you apply then your membership will be considered by your Section Leader and the Committee. There is an occasional need for a waiting list.
Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings between 7.30pm and 9.30pm, at Benslow Music Trust, Benslow Lane, Hitchin, SG4 9RB. (Occasionally we go to other venues, but notice will always be given and details posted on the Dates page.)
The best time to join is at the start of a new term (see our Dates page). If you are interested in paying us a visit, please contact our Membership Secretary email@example.com so we can be ready to welcome you and ensure there is some music ready for you. We look forward to seeing you!
