We meet on Wednesday evenings from 7.45pm to 9.15pm during term-time at Churcher's College. We are an open access choir and our main aim is to enjoy singing together in harmony. There is no audition, and no need to read music. 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, please email [email protected] , or come along on a Wednesday. The first 'taster' session is free.
We learn songs by 'call and repeat' - our choir leader sings a line and we repeat it back to her, gradually building up to the whole 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. She also runs community choirs in Winchester and Alton.
We usually perform two concerts each year, in the summer and at Christmas, 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]
On 27th March we have a guest conductor, Brendan Taaffe. Some will know how good he is from Singfest - it will be a great evening, not to be missed!
