Normal rehearsals are between 7:30pm and 9:30pm on Mondays in St John’s Church Hall. There is usually a short break at about 8.30. Members should please arrive no later than 7.25pm and be ready to start singing at 7.30. Fortunately there will be no foreseen need for us to rehearse in the church this season.
Promptness, possession of a soft pencil (never use ink or highlighters on hired music) and a minimum chatter during rehearsals is appreciated.
- Rehearsal for the June concert will start on 25th April

Streamed “midi” and other music files files of the more popular choral works can be downloaded free from “Cyberbass ” and “LearnChoralMusic.co.uk”.
