Singing With Us

Rehearsals are held  in The Village Hall, Eccles, five miles north of Coldstream, on Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:30 pm.  Occasionally we use alternative rehearsal venues. We don't rehearse in the last couple of weeks in December and this year are taking July and August off.


MEMBERSHIP

Full Membership


- is open to successfully auditioned singers who are able to commit to weekly rehearsals and the majority of concerts. 

 


Our current establishment is 32 Full Members, divided into eight sections - 1st & 2nd Sopranos, 1st & 2nd Altos, 1st & 2nd Tenors and 1st & 2nd Basses.  Periodically Full Membership vacancies arise and are filled by audition - singers are expected to be able to hold a line. We need the ability to sing in tune, but we don't demand trained voices. Reading music is a requirement, but singing accurately at first sight is not essential. 



Guest Choristers


- competent singers who would like to sing with us but cannot commit to full membership, who can make themselves available for concert rehearsals & performances by invitation, and other rehearsals as appropriate. Guest singers are used as deputies for full members.


Apprentices

- our apprenticeship scheme is available by invitation to inexperienced singers who join us for rehearsals to develop their skills and confidence. Apprenticeships, when offered, are available for six months and the most suitable time to begin is in January.
