If you enjoy singing with the main choir and feel like stretching yourself to perform a more challenging repertoire, do consider joining Barts Chamber Choir. Rehearsals focus on the interpretation of the music, the sound of the choir and developing the overall performance. There are normally 5 rehearsals for each concert and you will be expected to have learnt your part in your own time before the first rehearsal.

To join, you must pass a straightforward singing test. The purpose is to assess your tone, basic intonation and rhythm, to confirm which voice part you sing, and to ensure we have a good blend of voices. The test will last about five minutes and can be taken either by Ivor or a guest conductor who has been engaged to lead the next concert. During the test you will be asked to sing a short piece of music of your own choosing and to do a few exercises such as sight-reading, repeating a phrase or singing scales, arpeggios or intervals.

The next concert will be in the Spring term. Rehearsal dates are (all Thursdays) 28 March (open rehearsal), 4 April, 11 April, 2 May, 9 May, with a concert on Saturday 11 May. All rehearsals will be at St Giles in the Fields. The conductor will be Patrick Craig and the repertoire will be confirmed shortly.
