Do I need to Audition?
There is an Audition, this is more about which section you will join 1st Tenor, 2nd Tenor, Baritone or Bass. When on board you will join as a
probationer, normally for about six months while learning the repertoire, during this period you will work with an experienced Choir Member. At the end of this probation period you will be given
a further voice test before becoming a full Member. During the Probation period we can help you with your singing with voice coaching if needed.
What does it cost to become a Choir Member?
After the Probation period the annual Subs are circa £120 this can be paid in two parts of £60 Jan & July or by a monthly Standing Order of £10. You will also have to contribute to the uniform cost this which will be fully explained on initial contact, again this can be spread over a period to suit you.

Do I need to read music?
It is not necessary to read music but it helps, all the songs sung are learnt at rehearsals, you do have to learn the words. We have a series of
ways to assist you to do this.
Where do you rehearse?
We meet every Tuesday at Kingsley Park Methodist Church, Kettering Road, Northampton NN2 7HG 7.30 until 9.30. It is expected of all
Choir Members to attain a 75% attendance record. In some circumstances for major concerts it would be necessary to attend extra rehearsals.
It is also usual to attend the two rehearsals prior to a Concert. You are most welcome to visit us any Tuesday to listen, meet and discuss.
Are Choristers expected to attend every concert?
We perform at approximately 15 concerts a year, no one can be available for all concerts, however you would be expected to attend a high
number of these. There are  of course times where this is not possible due to work or other unavoidable long absences.
