We are an open access choir - there are no auditions and no need to read music. Our main aim is to enjoy singing together in harmony. We meet at The Salvation Army Hall on Swan Street, Petersfield, on Wednesday evenings 7.45pm to 9.15pm during term-time. The cost is £5 per session, payable on the night - or you can pay by the term, at a slightly reduced rate. If you are interested in joining the choir please contact [email protected] before coming along; membership has increased recently and we are monitoring numbers to avoid overcrowding.
We learn our songs by the 'call and repeat' method, where our choir leader sings a line and we repeat it back to her, gradually building up to the whole verse, the chorus, and finally the entire song. Most songs are in three or four part harmony. We are lucky to have Carolyn Robson as our Musical Director, a professional singer and musician with a wealth of teaching and performing experience.
We usually perform two concerts each year, at Christmas and in the summer, often combining with other local music groups. Funds raised at these events go to local charities nominated by choir members (see the Reports section). Although most of us enjoy performing we appreciate that some people prefer not to - you are welcome to just come to rehearsals and enjoy the singing!
We like to participate in community events where possible - if you would like us to sing at a local event, please get in touch [email protected]
Our Term starts on Wednesday 10th January, 7.45 pm at the Salvation Army Hall in Swan Street, Petersfield.
See you there!
UPDATE!! The final total raised for the Rosemary Foundation is £1,306. Thank you all, once again
