Want to sing with us?

It is our aim to have an ongoing committed group of 18 singers (9 male and 9 female).   We invite potential members twice a year, usually at the beginning and middle of the year. If you are interested in being part of our vibrant group please read below and contact us about taking the next step.

Who are we looking for?

To be eligible for choir membership, you must:

  • be able to attend at least 3 out of every 4 rehearsals
  • be a confident singer who enjoys harmonising with others
  • be available to perform a couple of times a term; this will mostly be in the evening or weekend

The commitments

We expect all members to attend at least 3 out of 4 practices.   Absences impact on our ability to make progress learning our repertoire and improving the quality of our sounds, harmonies and general musicality. It just makes things hard going and unsettled, that’s why we make a big deal about it.

Our practice sessions are scheduled around school terms. They are usually 10 sessions, plus a one day workshop.

The audition process

We invite potential members to participate in one of our regular practices or a one-day workshop. Here we can if find out if your vocal range and quality suits the current composition of our choir. It’s also an opportunity for all of us to see whether our personalities are compatiblechoir – remember, we’re a small group and getting along together is important!

There is no need to prepare a song and you will not be expected to sing on your own. However, we would like you to participate in warm-up and song practice and you can ask any of us questions.

Soon after this first practice - and assuming you are still keen on joining – we will get in touch to let you know if we would like you to join.

Membership fees

WOSOSI is self-funded. The membership fees collected each term cover the costs of our conductor, guest conductors and practice space. We offer a reduced fee for unwaged/low income members. If you cannot afford the fee you can discuss your situation with our treasurer Alastair Hercus to come to an arrangement.

Interested?

If you would like to join WOSOSI please contact us first before coming to a rehearsal. You can email us or use our enquiry form and one of our committee members will get in touch with you. Include a little about yourself; what interests you about our choir, what previous singing/performing experience you have had (previous choral experience is helpful but not essential).
