Join our choir!
We are a thriving mixed-voice choir of 100 members, and whilst we do not audition members we are not short on ambition. Through the expert guidance of our Musical Director, Graham Wili, we consistently achieve very high standards, balanced with the sheer enjoyment of singing together and socialising with our favourite people! Apart from performing in our Autumn, Christmas and early Summer concerts, we also embark on a hugely popular annual foreign tour in mid July, and have enjoyed singing in some of the most beautiful cathedrals and churches in Europe.
Whilst we welcome experienced singers, it doesn’t matter if you haven’t sung since your schooldays or can’t read music. We pride ourselves in being a very friendly choir, and if you want to sing and are willing to commit to attend rehearsals regularly, you will be very welcome.
We run on a split-year basis and our subscription, which includes hire of music and fees for occasional Saturday workshops in the run-up to concerts, is due at the start of each programme as follows:-
- Christmas programme – £60
Programme runs from after the Autumn Concert in September to the Christmas concert
- Summer & Autumn programme – £120
Programme runs from January through to our Autumn Concert in September
The annual cost of £180 works out at only £1.80 per hour throughout the whole year!
Our Membership Secretaries are always at the door to greet everyone and help new members to settle in.
Rehearsals are every Wednesday evening within term times from 8pm -10pm (doors open at 7.30pm) at the United Reformed Church, Petworth GU28 0AP.
The rehearsals are usually challenging but fun, and there is always the opportunity to socialise afterwards at The Star or The Angel Inn.
Thinking of joining…..?
Our next term will start with split rehearsals throughout September. The first half (8-9pm) will introduce our new Christmas programme, and the second half (9-10pm) will continue rehearsals of Mozart’s Missa Brevis in D major, amongst other classical favourites – to be performed in The Sacred Heart Church, Petworth on September 28th 2019. Newcomers are welcome to both halves, particularly if they have covered the Mozart programme previously and would like to sing in the September concert.
The subscription for this part of the programme is £60 which will cover attendance and music hire from September 2019 to our Christmas Concert in December 2019.
New joiners welcome from 4th September 2019 – please use the Contact Form below if you’re interested in joining.
