Wanna Join the Choir?
The new autumn term for the Choir begins next Tuesday evening and we are looking for new members to join us. We have 3 performances coming up over the next 3 months that YOU could be a part of. Fancy singing in front of Princess Michael of Kent in November? Well, if you join us you will get that chance. Now, usually we only allow people who live or work in South Oxhey to join us but we are now opening this up to anyone who lives or works in the THREE RIVERS DISCTRICT.
That’s right, as long as you live or work within the Three Rivers District you can apply to join the South Oxhey Choir. This of course includes Rickmansworth, Croxley Green, Mill End, Chorleywood, Sarratt, Kings and Abbots Langley, Hunton Bridge and Bedmond. All you need to do is print out THIS FORM and bring it along to one of the first 2 rehearsals, either Tuesday 25th Sept or Tuesday 2nd October. Rehearsals are at Oxhey Wood School, Oxhey Drive, South Oxhey every Tuesday evening so you need to be able to be there BETWEEN 6.30pm and 7pm to be ready to start rehearsing on time as we have a lot of songs to get through each week.
We are especially interested in recruiting more Basses and Male Tenors and also some more Sopranos, but Altos are welcome too although we already have a high number of them. Also, Simon, our Musical Director may ask you to audition before you join. This is more to see which section you would be best suited to and would NOT be done in front of the other Choir members.
Due to the amount of songs we have in our repertoire we only allow new members to join in the first TWO WEEKS of rehearsals of each new term. As a Choir, we do not perform with music scores and you will be required to learn all the songs for our performances off by heart. You will also need to attend at least 8 of the 10 rehearsals to be allowed to perform at our concerts.
So, as long as you live or work within the Three Rivers District, can make 80% of our rehearsals and be in your seat ready to start singing by 7pm each Tuesday, you will be singing in front of Royalty come November. Fancy it?
