All you need is an enjoyment of singing and a desire to improve
We meet at 8 p.m. every Monday at North Camp Methodist Church Hall, Lynchford Road, Farnborough, GU14 6EG. We also have occasional extra rehearsals before major concerts.
Each member is expected to attend regular rehearsals. The choir does take a short break at Easter (one week), Christmas (two weeks) and a summer break from mid-July to early September.
You can work on new musical pieces in between rehearsals – practice aids are made available to help with this using a free computer programme called Noteworthy.
Come along to any rehearsal and just try us out - we are a friendly bunch!
The choir performs two major concerts each year: a Summer Concert at the Princes Hall, Aldershot in June; and a Christmas Concert at Farnham Maltings in December. Both are major fund raising events for local charities that we select. Interspersed between these concerts we perform for smaller fund raising events. On average we have 1-2 of these a month and in total we help to raise around £10,000 for local good causes.
The yearly subscription to be a member of the choir is £120, payable as a Monthly Standing Order of £10 or a one-off cheque.
The first year’s subscription for new members is just £10 on the understanding that they will buy a uniform in the first year of membership.
Our uniform currently consists of a blazer with crest and grey trousers, plus white shirt and a choir tie.
It is suggested that new members wait a few weeks before rushing out to buy a uniform just to see if the choir’s culture is what they are seeking before incurring cost.
