Join Us

Sing with us

New Members are always welcome.

If you are interested in singing with one of the finest large choirs in the country, then all you have to do is to come along to one of our rehearsals.

Normally you come and sing with us in rehearsals for three weeks and are then auditioned by our Music Director, Richard Laing – this is a straightforward and painless experience, honestly!

People join us from many different backgrounds and for many different reasons, but all would agree that it’s a lot of fun and there is always something new to learn. Here you can hear two of our members telling Radio 3’s Meet My Choir what the “Harmonic” means to them.

Please do come along if you are interested – we are a friendly large choir of over 150 members, and you will be made very welcome.

How to join the Choir
for the 2021-22 season

We are now at full capacity in our temporary venue. Hopefully in the next few weeks we will be back at our regular venue which should have greater capacity. If you wish to join us please read on. Do apply. We can then invite you to a rehearsal as soon as we have space.

For the 2021-22 season we are implementing a Covid-19 protocol that means we need to know how many people want to attend each rehearsal.

For further details please read How to join the choir – Season 2021-22 and then inform Michael Napier, the New Members Secretary, what voice you sing (S, A, T or B) and on which date you would like to first attend by emailing or via the contact page (with Subject/Recipient set to Joining the Choir).
