New adult singers are always welcome. No previous choral experience is required, nor is there an audition, but the ability to sing in tune is expected. It is not essential to be able to read music although it does help because the works we perform can be challenging. It is expected that each singer will learn their part and, if necessary, practice between rehearsals. Members who attend less than 50% of the rehearsals for a concert are not normally allowed to sing in that concert.
As of September 2021 we have introduced a two terms per year system with a termly fee of £50 or a single payment of £75 for the full year. Needless to say most members have opted for the annual payment, but the termly option provides new members with a way to try us out at reasonable cost.
Rehearsals are held at 7.30pm every Tuesday at Christ’s Hospital, Horsham. Most rehearsals are held in the Court Room but, occasionally, are in the Wakefield Centre (follow the red line from the car park to building 37 on the map below). There are no rehearsals during the school’s holidays or half term holidays. The final Tuesday rehearsal before a concert is usually held in the concert venue. (There is typically a “dress” rehearsal on the day of a concert, and it is a requirement that this be attended if singing in the concert.)
We hold a workshop for each major work we sing in our Spring concert and visiting singers are very welcome. Read more here
