Becoming a Member of the Croydon Bach Choir
We are always delighted to receive applications for membership. Previous choral singing experience is an advantage, but an accurate singing voice with a pleasant tone quality, the appropriate voice-part vocal range, a good musical ear and basic score-reading skills are more important.
Members are expected to make a commitment to attend rehearsals regularly and to perform at all our main concerts. We require that members take individual responsibility to ensure they thoroughly learn their parts in the works we are performing - undertaking additional private study as necessary - so that they are able to take part in our concerts confidently and to make a positive contribution to the standard of the choir.
We do not hold formal auditions; instead, we offer prospective members a trial period of one term, during which their progress will be monitored by an experienced choir member. This also gives them an opportunity to decide whether the Croydon Bach Choir is the right choir for them.
