Come and try out our fun and friendly choir! First taster session free! No auditions!
Fresher's Week 2018 - We'll have a stall in the Forum from 11am to 3pm on Monday 17th September if anyone would like to talk to the Committee and our Director about the choir.
Our first Taster Session for 2018-2019 academic year will be held at Cornwall House Activity Room 3 on Tuesday 18th September 2018 from 6.30pm-9pm.
Taught by a professional, fun and friendly director, we rehearse every Tuesday from 7-8:30pm in the Forum Seminar Rooms, singing gorgeous music from all around the world. This means different languages, lovely harmonies and a chance to try something new every week! Unlike many other choirs, we don't audition - everyone is welcome. We are a diverse group, with members coming together from all across the planet to create a wonderful sound! We also welcome non-student members, which makes us unique amongst the university's non-classical choirs and gives us a real community feel.
As a choir we perform in many concerts: at the end of every term, big yearly events (Bristol Choir Convention, Exeter Respect Festival and Exeter Respect Festival on Streatham Campus) and some new and exciting venues (like the Eden Project and at the Corn Exchange). We already have events lined up for this year, including our Winter Concert in the Chapel.
As far as instruments are concerned, we mainly sing ‘a cappella’ (unaccompanied – just voices in harmony) but occasionally we’ll add a percussion instrument for added effect - such as buffalo drums and rattles to accompany a Native American song! Some of our songs also include the occasional dance move...
Cost for students: £20 annual membership + £2 subs for each session.
Cost for non-students: £60/ £50(concession) per 10 week term in Autumn and Spring. The Summer term is proportionately reduced as it is a short term. (This includes an annual payment to the student Guild for being a student Guild 'Associate Member').
This covers our brilliant director's salary.
Feel free to come along to any session - your first one is free - and experience our fun and friendly choir!
