We are experienced in ensuring that members of the Chorus are singing something that's within their capabilities but also promise to help singers progress as much as possible. No one has to sing by themselves and there is a great strength in singing together.
To help Chorus members, a CD featuring the music for each voice part to be performed at each show is provided for every member. This helps with rehearsing at home, in addition to the weekly rehearsals.
The Chorus learns and performs a wide-ranging selection of pieces, from Classical to Contemporary, Opera to Blues, Show Tunes and Pop songs - we cover a wide range of music to make sure that there is something for everyone.
If you’re worried about passing an audition to get in, fear not – unlike some choirs, there’s no formal audition.
Each week we give valuable and practical lessons, not just in learning the music and notes, but importantly in vocal technique to develop a confident, high quality sound. Every member personally benefits from this - no matter what their previous singing experience is.
If you love music and want to learn with others in a positive, welcoming and safe environment, come and say hello to us on Wednesday evenings (7:30 - 9:50pm) at Wesley Methodist Church, Queens Road, Reading. (We start rehearsals for the Spring season on Weds 6th Jan).
