Join Orlando Chamber Choir
Orlando Chamber Choir is always interested in hearing (from) enthusiastic new members - although there are no immediate vacancies at the moment.
All you need is a good voice that blends with the current group of singers, and the willingness to commit to weekly rehearsals - we are not a project choir. Good sight reading is essential. Orlando Chamber Choir mainly performs Renaissance and baroque works so an interest in "old music" is helpful, too.
The choir prepares four concert programmes each year - a large-scale autumn concert in November, a Christmas concert and performances in March and in June. Usual concert terms consists of ten evening rehearsals, an all-day Saturday rehearsal and an afternoon dress rehearsal on the concert day. The evening rehearsals take place on Thursdays from 19:00 to 21:30 at St Clement Eastcheap [ map ]. Choir contributions are £75 per term, with student rates available on request.
Orlando Chamber Choir is not just a group of ambitious singers but also a friendly bunch. After rehearsals we usually round off the evening at the 17th-century The Ship [ map ] or another pub near our rehearsal venue.
