Membership fees are £150 per annum. There is a concessionary rate of £100 available to members under the age of 25 and to those in receipt of state benefits, not including the State Pension. Members who do not fall into these categories but who nevertheless would otherwise be unable to participate please contact the Membership Secretary. Where possible such cases will be looked at sympathetically.
Vocal scores are provided to members free of charge, whenever possible. If you wish to buy your own copy, the librarians can often provide music at a discount. You may, however, be asked to provide your own copy of Carols for Choirs Book 1 for Christmas concerts (approximate cost £10-£12).
Learning the Music
There is now quite a wide range of websites and other resources which can help to learn the notes of the works we are rehearsing. All choir members are encouraged to spend some ‘homework’ time so that we can gain maximum benefit at rehearsals without spending long periods ‘note-bashing’.
