Although we prepare each work thoroughly in rehearsal, members are also expected to practice pieces at home as well. This is particularly important for new singers who may be less familiar with the work, or who are developing their abilities. Fortunately, there are a number of websites which offer useful tools that help you to practice on your own, without the rest of the choir!
One of the best is Choraline, which provides each individual voice part with its own line, played by a specific instrument. You can then hear your part emphasised, against the background of the other parts. You can download MP3 files, or order CD's. See www.choraline.com

Tickets & Publicity
We rely on tickets sales to support our activities, and it's always much more enjoyable singing to a full hall! We hope that all members will sell at least two tickets per concert, and in this way every concert should be a success. In addition, we will provide flyers and posters 6-8 weeks before each concert, please help make sure these are displayed / distributed as widely as possible.
We expect members to attend all rehearsals and concerts where possible. If you know you are going to be away please let Jenny (membership) know, or Sebastian if you are away for a couple of weeks or more.
