Information for Singers

The choir meets every Tuesday in term time at Maidstone Girls' Grammar School, Buckland Hill, Maidstone ME16 0SF  from 7.30 to 9.30.

If you are interested in joining come along to a rehearsal to see whether you enjoy it or contact the membership secretary. (See contacts).

Usually we have 4 concerts per year at the Mote Hall n Maidstone and one extra concert on Twelfth Night, the 6th, January, in a local church. You can buy or hire scores.

The choir is sometimes invited to sing at other events such as the Maidstone Festival, weddings, funerals etc.

Annual Subscriptions cost 95 (Student membership only 6 per concert).

We are a very friendly choir and you will be asked to sit next to an established choir member who will keep a friendly eye on you. If you decide to join the choir, you will be asked to audition after a few weeks when you know us. You will be asked to sing something familiar for our MD who needs to know which section of the choir your voice is suited to. You do not have to be able to sight-read music, although it helps, but practising with a CD between rehearsals is also useful!
