Join The Choir

_L4A0021 We are essentially a group of amateur singers and welcome new singers in August and at our mid-term point in the New Year.

Entry is by simple audition, but  don’t be put off by this – we are always interested in welcoming new members, and  auditioning helps us gauge vocal range and ability with singing scales and arpeggios.  Some ability to read music is desirable.

In common with many choirs, we are especially keen to hear from men – either tenor or bass – who might be interested in joining the choir and helping to keep a good balance between the sections.

The singing season is from mid-August through to Easter, and rehearsals take place weekly on Monday evenings  from 7pm to 9pm in Laurieknowe Primary School.  The annual subscription fee is currently £86.

Members of the Choral Society who have joined us recently have been happy to say that “it was great when we came into our first rehearsal – the music hit us like a fabulous wall of sound. Everyone has been so welcoming”.

‘ It would be lovely to welcome some new faces for our coming season and we would like to encourage people of all ages to come and see how it feels to be part of a choir. Singing is something which many of us have not had the opportunity to participate in since our primary school days, which is a shame as choral singing is good fun as well as being an excellent workout.’
