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 on 18 November 2018 and the tests will start early in the term. Conductor Hilary Campbell. Programme: Bruckner motets, Rheinberger motets, Brahms songs, Mendelssohn Hear my Prayer. Rehearsal schedule: Fridays 5 Oct, 12 Oct, 2 Nov, 9 Nov, 16 Nov.
