Join the choir
If you’re at all interested in joining us, you would be most welcome to come along for a few weeks to our Monday evening rehearsals to see how you get on. You would be made to feel very much at home and given as much support as you need. However, as we will have some Covi-19 protocols and precautions in place for the immediate future, it is vital that you make contact with us first so that we can explain to you what these are and ensure that you are able and willing to comply with them. Please email our Membership Secretary Olwen Moss or call her on 020 8863 7830.
Then, when you're ready, you can apply to join us properly – which involves a very straightforward, informal voice-assessment just to ensure that you can sing in tune and in time, and that your chosen voice part is correct (ie soprano, alto, tenor or bass). Some basic music-reading ability would be helpful but in the absence of this, a willingness and aptitude to learn the music by virtue of regular attendance at rehearsals (and perhaps some homework) will usually suffice.
We also offer various opportunities for 'continuous improvement' under the banner of Harrow Choral Academy.
Please have a look at this short video about the choir and what you might expect if you were to join - and also this flip-book prepared last year which gives a bit more information and background. You can also see what a couple of recent members have to say about their experience of the choir so far - here and here.
We were recently featured on Radio 3 in their Meet my Choir programme - click here if you'd care to listen to a member's perspective of being in the choir. And if you'd like to get a feel for what it's like leading up to an actual concert, have a look at this video about our preparations for Summer 2018.
