During this stage of the COVID pandemic, we have moved our rehearsals out of doors! We also simultaneously broadcast via Zoom for those unable to make the live rehearsals. Rehearsals run from 7.30pm-9.30pm every Tuesday, up to and including 22 June 2021, in the garden of Haslingfield Methodist Church.
The weather forecast rehearsal Tuesday 22 June is NOT GOOD, and we will therefore rehearse at All Saints' Church. Haslingfield.
We understand that it may difficult for choir members to attend all rehearsals, but if you know you are going to be absent, it is helpful if you can let our secretary, Kate, know.
If you need to miss more than two rehearsals, we request that you talk to Paul.
Rehearsals: Via Zoom for the moment, but normally in The Methodist Church, Haslingfield, CB23 1JW
Concerts (and last 2 rehearsals): All Saints’ Church, Haslingfield, CB23 1JF
You don’t need to buy your own sheet music, as we hire enough copies for each member of the choir and orchestra to borrow. However, some choir members like to buy their own score, so if that is the case, it would be worth finding out in advance which edition we are using, to make it easier during rehearsals.
Can I try out rehearsals?
You are welcome to try out a rehearsal to see if you would like to join us. There is no audition, but Paul may wish to hear you sing to see where your voice fits within the choir. We are happy for members to attend rehearsals even if they are not able to sing in the concert at the end of the term.
Help learning the music
One of our choir members has developed a very helpful learning tool that can be found at www.learnchoralmusic.co.uk. We also recommend CDs and YouTube videos for familiarising yourself with the music.
"It's most unusual to have in one's village a choir whose Musical Director, most of the choir and orchestra walk home afterwards!”
