If you think you might like to join Basingstoke Ladies' Choir then come along to Carnival hall where we rehearse each Monday under the direction of Rob Elliott who has been working with us since 2017. Rehearsals start at 7.30 but the doors are open from 7pm. Come 10-15 minutes before the start so we can give you a brief outline of how the rehearsal goes and introduce you to some of our singers. There are periods when the choir takes a short break – usually at Easter, a couple of weeks at Christmas/New Year, and the whole month of August. This helps in getting the balance between choir commitment and work/family life just right! Our repertoire is ever-changing, and we are continually pushing the boundaries in exploring new and exciting music of all styles. If, after a number of weeks, you think that you would like to become a member of the choir, Rob will arrange an assessment (in private) with you: to see how you have been getting along, ensure that you are in the right section, are able to listen, learn and replicate effectively, and have attained the standard to become a full member. This is all covered in a very low-key and relaxed manner and only takes a few minutes. Once you become a member you will have access to all our teaching resources via our website and much more. There is a subscription for membership and our treasurer can give you all the details.
We look forward to welcoming you at our rehearsals. If you would like to contact someone beforehand then Jackie, our Membership Secretary will be pleased to hear from you.
