We are a lively and forward-looking community choir with about 35 members. Our programme of concerts offers an exciting and varied selection of music to appeal to all and we frequently perform with local instrumental groups and choirs. We support local charities as well as promoting our own events and provide entertainment at community events such as the Mayor's annual reception and the Christmas lights switch on. We give three concerts a year, are normally on Saturdays in St. Thomas a Becket church or or local venues.
We sing music in parts - soprano, alto, tenor, bass. No auditions are held and there is no requirement that you should be able to read music as it will be taught to you. Music is provided. We have an annual subscription to meet the cost of employing our musical director and accompanist and paying for our running expenses. This is currently £135 per year (about £3.38 per rehearsal) but can be paid in installments.
We have places for new members of all voices. So don't be shy, just come along on a Thursday and see what you think. There's no obligation and we're very friendly!

Venue: Ramsey Junior School
Meeting to practice the music for the next planned concert. There is a short break in the rehearsal for notices and socialising. Members bring their own cold drinks. Music is borrowed from the County library and lent to members. Members take their music away and practise it if they can. Rehearsal CDs may be available. Before a concert the final Thursday rehearsal will be in the concert venue and there is also a rehearsal on the afternoon of the concert. Members are expected to attend as many rehearsals as they can. Once or twice a year we have a 'Singing Saturday' to give a more concentrated rehearsal time.
We meet only during term time. If you wish to join us just turn up at one of our meetings.
Occurrence: School Term Time Only
