Information for Choir Members
The choir rehearses weekly at a Nottingham venue on Tuesday evenings during school terms, from 7.30 to 9.45. Punctual and regular attendance contributes to the excellence of our music making.
An annual subscription is payable. There are certain exceptions to this at the discretion of the committee.
Choir members are expected to own certain music, mostly collections and Christmas carols. From time to time they are invited to purchase music for concerts, but sometimes music is hired, and sometimes it is purchased by the choir.
Uniform: Women wear black skirts or trousers and black tops, together with coloured scarves. Men wear black trousers and black shirts.
