Competent singers of all voices are always welcome.
We rehearse on Monday nights during school term times, in St Peterís Church, Leigham Court Road, Streatham, SW16, from 8.0 until 10.0 p.m., with a short break for refreshments. On the week of a concert we usually have an extra rehearsal on Thursday night and in the afternoon of the concert at the venue.
Prospective new members are encouraged to spend 3-4 choir practices with us, before taking a simple singing test with the Musical Director. They should demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Musical Director that they are able to:
- sing in tune;
- blend with other voices and hold a part;
- sight-read to a minimum standard.
Solo opportunities arise in some of the classical concerts, where the aim is to use voices from within the choir as far as possible. This depends on the quality of the voice, experience of the singer, and the accompaniment. The summer concerts offer more opportunities for solo singing, as well as duets, quartets, etc, as this is a more light-hearted event.
