New choristers are always welcome. Please feel free to come and sit in on a rehearsal before you join.
The choir is not auditioned, but if you are unsure as to what voice part you should be singing, the Musical Director will assist you. This will consist of singing scales, etc, to check your range, and is quite painless. Some knowledge of music is desirable, but dedication is more important.
In general, rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings, from 7.30 to 10.00pm, at Camberwell Baptist Church, on the corner of Riversdale Road and Wills Street (just west of the Camberwell Junction). Additional rehearsals are usually held in the week before a performance.
On commencement of practising, the membership subscription becomes payable.
*Concession rates are available to people holding the following Federal Government concession cards: Pensioner Concession card, Health Care Card (all types), Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, Department of Veterans’ Affairs Card, Veterans’ Repatriation Health Card.
When it is necessary to print the music scores for a concert, members may be required to pay the printing costs up to a maximum of $10, following which the music is then the property of that member.
