Want to join?

If the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber has your foot tapping in time or you sing along to Handel's Hallelujah Chorus in the car then maybe it is time to try singing along with others who enjoy a similar style of music.

 
 
We are always looking for new members, especially in the male voice sections of the choir. Although we are a non-auditioned choir we aim to maintain high standards. If you are not sure which voice section you belong, please talk to our Musical Director. You don't have to be able to sight-read, but a reasonable ability to read music would help and, of course, the ability to sing in tune.

 
You do not have to be a Highworth resident to become a member. You will be welcome to join us wherever you live as long as you can commit to attending rehearsals. As a general rule, members who wish to sing in a particular concert should attend at least 70% of the rehearsals. The final rehearsal on the day is compulsory. Should either of these points prove to be impossible, the Musical Director has the final say on whether you can take part in the performance.

 

  The age range of our members is very wide and in recent years there has been a noticeable increase in numbers in the lower age groups which underlines the tremendous appeal of choral singing. The dress code for the concerts will depend on the venue and repertoire, although we are unlikely to ask you to buy anything which you would be unable to wear on other social occasions.
 

We realise it can be very daunting to take that first step into a new organisation but many of us who did have been greatly rewarded by the experience of providing much pleasure to our audiences. If all of the above has not put you off, we look forward to welcoming you into a friendly group of like-minded people. Should you not want to sing at your first rehearsal, feel free to just come along, listen and have a chat.

 

You will be asked to pay an annual membership subscription. The rate varies depending on certain circumstances and you will be informed of the applicable rate when you join.

Monday nights will never be the same!
