Come and sing with us!

We would be delighted to welcome you as a new member of the Choir! It’s really simple to join: just come along to rehearsals for a few weeks and then attend a short audition. An ability to read music is not essential, but previous singing experience is an advantage. We are looking for enthusiasm, and commitment to regular attendance at rehearsals and concerts.

From 14 September 2021, we are planning to resume in-person rehearsals on Tuesday evenings from 8.00 to 9.30 pm, at the United Reformed Church, Chapel Lane, Wilmslow SK9 1PR. Please visit our Members’ Area for current rehearsal arrangements. If you are interested in joining us, please contact the Choir Secretary on 0161 485 1659. Alternatively, you can email us by completing the form below.

Full members currently pay a subscription of £130 per year. This covers the costs incurred in hiring the venues for rehearsals and concerts, paying for the regular services of our conductor and accompanist, hiring music scores, and paying for our concert soloists and orchestra. It also covers the costs of publicity and advertising, plus website design and maintenance. We believe it represents very good value for money, given that with all the rehearsals and concerts, we are offering you about 35 great nights out per year! Reduced fees are available for the under-25s, and for people who wish to sing with us for just part of the season. Fees are normally due at the start of the season.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals from 14 September 2021 will take place every Tuesday evening from 8pm – 9.30pm at the United Reformed Church, Chapel Lane, Wilmslow SK9 1PR. For more information about joining the choir, please click here
