If you are a keen, or lapsed singer, why not come along to a rehearsal?
Rehearsals are held at Alton Maltings Centre, Alton on Tuesday evenings from 7.45pm to 9.30pm during which there is a short break for refreshments and notices.
Rehearsals always include a thorough vocal warm up. Rebekah is a singer herself, and rehearsals include lots of tips on singing technique and how to improve your sound. Members are expected to work on the music between rehearsals, so we don’t spend too much time note learning.
We are passionate about our music, and the work we put in means that rehearsals are stimulating and great fun. The choir is lively, friendly and ambitious with a wide-ranging classical repertoire. You can see the range of pieces we have chosen to perform by looking at past events on this website..
The choir season lasts from September to the end of June and there is normally a break at Christmas and at Easter. We periodically go on tour. In 2017, we are touring to Bristol, singing in the Cathedral and a separate concert, as well as having lots of fun!
We also occasionally hold workshops where those who want to can have the chance to sing for a day in smaller groups with one or two to a part.
There are a number of social activities throughout the year, with a Christmas Meal and usually ending with a summer BBQ celebration just after the summer concert. Partners are very welcome to all our social events, as well as our concerts of course!
We currently have vacancies for committed and enthusiastic tenors and basses. Interested sopranos and altos can join a waiting list. For more about what it’s like to sing with the choir, see our videos on facebook!
