the choir & singing with us.
We usually have 3 concerts a year.
Repertoire is both classical and modern. Concert venues are
usually in Hemel Hempstead, where we can be accompanied by a variety of
instruments including piano, organ, harp or small orchestra.
Occasionally we join forces with other choirs, for example The Hardynge
Choir of Harpenden, to allow us to perform larger scale works.
We also undertake other ad hoc performances such
as the Age UK Concert and singing Christmas carols in the
town. We have had exchange visits with choirs in France and Mannheim.
If you are
interested in singing with us have a look at our Rehearsals Page
and come to a few rehearsals before committing to membership. Also note
that new members will have a half term free from charge.
There is no formal audition, however, after you
have been attending approximately 6 rehearsals our music director will
have a chat with you to see how you are getting on. He will ask you to
sing a few scales and perhaps something from one of the pieces we have
been learning. Some free help for note learning is usually
freely available on the internet. See the Links page or in
the case of Elgar's Gerontius click here .
The choir librarian
usually has hire music available for a small charge, or if you wish to
own a copy it can be bought for you.
fee is normally £150, but full time students, Dacorum Card holders and
all under 26 have a much reduced fee.

ties are provided by the Concert Manager.
