New Members

We recruit throughout the year for our Choral Society. Running from September - June, Choral Society meets for weekly evening rehearsals, and culminates in a public performance at the end of each term. If you would like to join the Choral Society from September we would love to hear from you. All voice types are welcome, and we are always keen to recruit more male voices.

The annual membership fee is £158 which includes access to our fantastic library facilities for the duration of the rehearsals.

No audition is required to join although the ability to read music is desirable.
