Quinborne Choir is a particularly warm and friendly choir. We welcome new members of all voice parts but, like most choirs, are especially keen to hear from prospective tenors and basses.
•We meet to rehearse on Wednesdays 7.45 to 9.45pm with a 15-minute refreshment break midway. The choir takes a summer break for part of July and August. Rehearsals are at The Quinborne Centre, Ridgacre Road, Quinton, B32 2TW in south west Birmingham.
•If you are interested in joining the choir, you are welcome to come and meet us and to try out some rehearsals. If after a few weeks you decide that you would like to join, you will have an informal and supportive audition with our conductor who will take you through some vocal warm ups to check the range of your voice and hear you sing a short section of your choice from one of the pieces on which we are working.
•Although it is very useful to be able to read music to some extent, it is not always essential when you first join as this skill can be learned and we also share helpful audio resources that can be used to practise between rehearsals.
•Likewise, although previous choral experience is helpful, the ability to sing in tune, enthusiasm and commitment are just as important. Our conductor works on vocal technique during the rehearsals and so it is your musical potential that matters.
•Our annual membership subscription is £12 per month or £144 per year. (Under 18s £4 per month, over 18s in full time education £6 per month.) No payment is needed until after a successful audition. Confidential consideration will be given to a member with financial difficulties.
•To ask about any other aspect of joining the choir and to register your interest, please contact Kay Chambers on 0121 422 5794, email or just come along to one of our rehearsals.
