Join

We have vacancies for singers in all parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass), and would be delighted to invite any interested prospective members to visit and sing with us for a rehearsal.

To sing with the Camden Choir, you must be able to read music, and you will find it much easier if you can do some sight-reading. You do not have to live in Camden! You will be most welcome to attend a couple of rehearsals as a guest to see if you wish to join us.

If you find you wish to join us, you will need to take a short voice test. You won’t need to prepare anything for this. When you pass, the subscription is £65 per term or £190 for the year, but please note that to purchase or hire music for a concert is an additional cost.

Please reach out to us at info@camdenchoir.london to register your interest or if you have any queries.

Location

Rehearsals will be in St Mary the Virgin, Primrose Hill, Elsworthy Road, NW3 3DJ, for the whole of the 2021–22 season. Entry is by the Elsworthy Road entrance only.

Date and time

For the time being, rehearsals will start at 19:30 and end at 21:20 with a 20-minute break at 20:30 to allow the church to be aired.

Precautions against COVID-19

The committee has conducted a rigorous Risk Assessment procedure before agreeing to live rehearsals and various mitigation procedures will be in place to minimise any danger of transmitting COVID-19.

Anyone wishing to attend a rehearsal must book in advance via Eventbrite. If they have not received the information via a MailChimp email, they should contact Anne Satchwell to receive log-in details.

We shall also be streaming rehearsals live on Zoom for anyone who is worried about coming to a live rehearsal or who is not feeling well that week. Again, contact Anne & we will supply the log-in details.

The committee appreciates that the various precautions will make rehearsals feel rather different from the past, but we have enough vulnerable people in the choir, or people living &/or working with vulnerable people, to make proper precautions essential.
