We always give new singers a warm welcome and they are given a mentor to introduce them and help them with any practical issues. We expect members to have some understanding of music notation, but the most important consideration is the ability to sing the right notes in tune and in time. Rehearsal files, highlighting the individual voice parts, are available to assist with the learning process. There is no formal audition.
The subscription is £70 a term, including music hire and rehearsal files. Half price concessions are available on application without any forms for members who feel they cannot afford it or are under 25.
A new member said: “The nerves that I felt soon disappeared as I was given such a warm welcome in a very friendly atmosphere. The thought of singing in Latin, French and German seemed a bit daunting. As I sang I just felt a passion for this beautiful music. Joining the choir has changed my life.”
We have social and musical online events from 15 April. Rehearsals start again on 20 May 2021. They are on Thursdays at 7.30-9 pm at Hartley Hall, Flower Lane, London NW7 2JA see map or occasionally in the adjacent St Michael’s Church. These are near bus routes 113, 114, 186, 221, 240, 251 and 302 and a short walk from Mill Hill Broadway Thameslink station. These are both Covid-safe venues with risk assessments and social distancing. Members are expected to attend 70% of rehearsals.
