If you enjoy singing and want to be part of a friendly group of like-minded people, why not try us out? We really aren’t scary, and we’d love to make you feel welcome. We typically perform three or four times per year, usually in local churches.

We really aren’t scary, and we’d love to make you feel welcome. We typically perform three or four times per year, usually in local churches.
There are various ways you can try us out, as follows:
Rehearsing during lockdown. Normally we meet together on Monday evenings, but under the current circumstances we are rehearsing online via Zoom at that time instead, and you would be very welcome to join in. Simply email our secretary Susan, or ring her on 01489 589 819, to find out how to participate, and the great thing is, on Zoom, no-one else hears you sing!
When things return to something like normal, we will once again be rehearsing from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm every Monday in United Reformed Church, Osborn Road South, Fareham, PO16 7DG, where we would be very pleased to welcome people with an interest in joining us. Previous experience and the ability to sight read are desirable but not essential. You will obviously need some copies of the music. For your first few rehearsals at least, you will probably find it easiest to borrow copies from our librarian, who will be happy to assist. Ideally, do please email our secretary Susan, or ring her as above, to let her know of your interest, but failing that, just turn up anyway, and ask to speak to one of the committee.
Alternatively, you could look out for one of our choral workshops and join us for a day’s singing on a Saturday, as these are an excellent way see whether this is for you.
You are encouraged to attend a few rehearsals before deciding whether you would like to become a member. If you decide to stay you will be asked to carry out a short voice assessment with our musical director, Andrew Cleary. Please see Voice Assessment for more details.
