MCCS is very much a choir for the community, and our principal aim is simply for our members to enjoy singing together. There is no audition, but potential members should:
- be able to sing roughly the same notes as the person next to them
- be willing to work hard, both in rehearsals and between them
If you have not sung in a choir before, this should not put you off coming along. Many of our singers were in the very same boat not so long ago. Likewise, although being able to read music is helpful, it is not a requirement (although, again, a willingness to learn as you go along will be invaluable). Rehearsal CDs are issued at the beginning of each new session so that you can practise singing along with your own line singled out.
The choir rehearses between 7.30 and 9.30pm every Tuesday evening during term time, in the David Bowerman Hall at Monkton Senior School. Some of us adjourn to the wonderful Wheelwright Arms afterwards….!
Membership is just £25 per term, which includes music hire and one free ticket for each concert. We think that’s a bargain!
