We're delighted to welcome new singers to join the choir. Please contact Margaret Hunt our Secretary on 01302 349850 if you'd like to come along.
We usually suggest that singers come and try some rehearsals with us. You'll be assured of a warm welcome and you can see how you enjoy singing with us.
We are an auditioned choir, so after you've been to a few rehearsals, we go through an audition process with you. We want this to be a welcoming and supportive process. (Please note, auditions are with our Music Director Matt, they are not undertaken in front of the whole choir.)
We've updated the audition process for 2023 onwards.
As before, we ask you to prepare a piece of your choice. This can be accompanied or unaccompanied as you choose. Please bring an additional copy of your music if you would like accompaniment.
In addition, there is a common piece we ask everyone to learn. The piece is an arrangement of The Water is Wide for SATB by our Music Director, Matt Beckingham.
By having a common piece which everyone sings, it helps us offer you and other candidates some support, provide rehearsal material, and gives a piece which helps demonstrate your voice within a choral part setting.
The audition material is available below for each voice. You can download a PDF of the music, and to support you in learning the piece, you can watch a YouTube video and listen to a sound file.
If you have any questions about the auditions please do chat to Matt at one of the rehearsals.
