Come and Sing with us!
The choir is always looking for new members, so if you have experience of singing, or can sing in tune (you don’t necessarily have to read music) come along to a rehearsal where you will receive a warm welcome. If you decide you would like to join, a short informal meeting with the Music Director will be held to establish the right section for your voice. After a few weeks settling in a short audition will take place where you will be asked to sing something that you have chosen.
Rehearsals are on Mondays
7.30pm to 9.30pm
Carnival Hall, Council Road,
Basingstoke RG21 3DH
If you would like more information before you come along, do use the ‘Contact Us’ page or telephone our Membership Secretary on 01256 359849. We look forward to hearing from you.
Some comments from some of our newest members:
"I joined the Basingstoke Ladies Choir after seeing an advert in the Basingstoke Gazette. The last time I sang in a choir was when I was at primary school, so I wasn’t sure how I would get on, but I have really enjoyed the combination of fun and challenge! Everyone has been very welcoming. Learning new songs has given my brain a much needed work-out but singing together has been a therapeutic relaxation in my hectic week. I love it! Going to rehearsals is a lot of fun!"
"I was thinking of joining a choir, but was apprehensive as last time I sang in choir was at school. I went along to the Christmas Concert and by chance sat beside a lovely lady who had been in the choir for over 30 years. She was so enthusiastic about the choir and encouraged me to join. I was introduced to Margaret who suggested I come along to the next rehearsal in January. I have not looked back and look forward to Monday evening rehearsals feeling refreshed and exhilarated after each session. Learning the songs is good brain power too! The members are so friendly and welcoming. Having spoken to many members I found that some have been in the choir for many years - a good indicator of its popularity!"
