New choir members are welcome, rehearsal details will be available nearer the time.
Rehearsals are guided by the choir master Bill Gloyn assisted by Michael Chapman, captured below in full flow at rehearsal.
A reasonable proficiency at reading music, excellent pitch and good voice is required which, with rehearsal, will hit most of the notes correctly!
For those eager to try out their singing elsewhere, why not visit the City Chorus in London. Their website is http://www.londoncitychorus.com and enquiries are to Dionne at [email protected] Their musical director is Paul Ayres and they rehearse close to Bank Tube station.
