New singers

Our tenor section is still the smallest in the choir. So, we are offering a bottle of champagne to anyone who introduces a tenor to the choir who sings in our next concert.

Please use the contacts you have in other choirs and musical ensembles. Don’t forget!

 

Of course, we would be delighted to welcome singers in other parts; please ask them to contact me or Phiroz first to help them to decide if we are the right choir for them, and vice versa.

 

In general new singers should join us very early in the term but we can waive this for people with lots of experience.
