** Chiswick Choir is still in action, despite the Coronavirus restrictions. **
** We have had to change the way we rehearse and perform,
but we still welcome new members! **
Chiswick Choir always welcomes new members. Some experience of choral singing and sight reading is helpful, but not compulsory. There is an informal audition for new members so that our Music Director can ensure they are placed within the appropriate section for their voice.
The choir usually rehearses on Tuesday evenings during term time at St Michael’s Church Centre in Chiswick. New members are welcome to attend rehearsals as a guest to get the feel of singing with the choir and to help them decide whether they want to join us.
** During the Coronavirus restrictions, we either rehearse online by using Zoom technology or, if circumstances permit, in smaller numbers following appropriate safety measures in St Michael’s Church, Grove Park.
** We are happy to welcome as temporary guests any singers whose regular choir is temporarily out of action!
Annual membership is £195 payable in October. Alternative arrangements can be made on request to the treasurer. In addition to rehearsals and performances, membership includes our annual party.
Chiswick Choir also offers a limited number of vocal scholarships each year to nurture the skills and experience of talented singers between the ages of 18 and 30.
A new choir member recently reported that “I have thoroughly enjoyed my first term with Chiswick Choir, and I really appreciate the high standards and high expectations of our musical director, Hilary. It has been an exciting and challenging term and I feel I have learned a lot. It has been a real privilege to sing with Chiswick Choir, (and this comes from someone who used to sing with the Philharmonia Chorus).”
If you are interested in joining Chiswick Choir or coming to any of our rehearsals, or would like more information about scholarships, please contact our Membership Secretary.
