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 4 or 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 test tone, basic intonation and rhythm, to confirm which voice part you sing, and ensure we have a good blend of voices. The tests will be taken by our current conductor & accompanist and last about five minutes. 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 or arpeggios.


The next Chamber Choir concert will be on Saturday 28 April 2018 at 6pm, at St Giles-in-the-Fields, with our guest conductor Julian Perkins. It features choral and piano works by the late Stephen Dodgson, including a World Premiere of three songs, Lines from Hal Summers. Dodgson was inspired by Holst and Holst, in turn, studied with Stanford, both of whom also feature in the programme. 

PROGRAMME: Byrd, Sing joyfully; Stanford, Justorum Animae & Beati Quorum Via; Holst, I love my love, I sowed the seeds of love, There was a tree; Dodgson, Lines from Hal Summers; Hilton, Fair Oriana; Parsons, Ave Maria; Britten, A hymn to the Virgin. Also two piano pieces by Stephen Dodgson: Air & Tambourin.

TICKETS are now available here or on the door and also available at the main choir rehearsals. Price £16 unallocated.
