We are a very friendly choir with a membership of over 50 active members.
Times were difficult during the pandemic using just Zoom for our rehearsals, but we're now up and running again in our new venue.
FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH
We’d love to hear from you. Please contact Martin in the first instance.
Our rehearsal day is Thursday. All welcome, no audition necessary.
Rehearsal starts at 7.00pm and ends at 8.30pm – doors open at 6.45pm
We are normally closed for public and bank holidays, the whole of September and the week between Christmas Eve and New Year.
Rehearsal Hall Address:
Immanuel URC Church
120 Southbourne Rd
Southbourne, Bournemouth, BH6 3QJ
There is limited dedicated parking but ample around the church in the quiet streets.
We have a varied social calendar ranging from fun fish ‘n chip suppers, BBQs and picnics, skittles and boat trips, to Christmas parties (usually in January as we're too busy in December!)
The choir charges a nominal amount for membership.
This covers the cost of music, room hire, affiliations, costumes and treats etc. Our music director receives no payment, all is done for the 'love of singing' and to help ensure all money raised goes to our charities.
Membership fees are £12.50 a month - about the cost of a cup of coffee a week - and can be payed quarterly if preferred.
The first two rehearsals are free of charge as a taster.
Current Covid requirements - These will change as the situation improves - review end of March 2022
All members should be suitably vaccinated and should maintain a safe distance from others.
Choir members should wear masks when moving about the building, taking them off when in place to sing.
Temperature will be taken on entry - anyone too high will be asked to 'cool down' somewhere and, if necessary, return home to recover.
We are pleased to report that, so far, we've had no Covid infections resulting from our choir practices.
