Choir FAQ

Who can join KC Community Choir?

You! We welcome anyone who is aged 16 and over and is keen to be part of a choir who love to sing great music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. There is no pressure to perform (although there will be opportunities) and you do not need to be able to read music (none is given out!) You will never be asked to sing solo against your will and any ‘choreography’ is kept very minimal. If you are a confident performer and aspire to take a lead solo in a song, there will be various opportunities to ‘audition’. KC Community Choir is for those who love to sing, regardless of experience or confidence. You need not worry about your perceived singing ability – singing in a relaxed choir environment is sure to bring out the very best in every voice.

What do rehearsals involve?

Each rehearsal session is 2 hours long with a short break in the middle. You will be led through some vocal warm-ups before working on the songs. We work on at least two songs per rehearsal and learn in parts with harmony. You will never be expected to know the song (although there’s a strong chance you will be familiar with it) and you do not need to read music. KC Community Choir is taught by ear and through repetition in a very relaxed way. We are a community choir and you need not be an experienced singer, performer or previous choir member to take part. You’ll be amazed at the sound we can create!

How much does membership cost?

Following your free taster session, KC Community Choir membership costs £90 per term. This can be paid either in full upon joining or in two £45 installments. Each term consists of 12 rehearsals and there are three terms per year. If you join us once a term has already started, you’ll only pay for the remaining sessions.

When does term start?

Our rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings and term starts on Tuesday 24th of September. The twelve-week term will run until Tuesday 17th December (no rehearsal on Tuesday 26th November).

Term One – 24th September 2019 – 17th December 2019 (no rehearsal 26th November)

Term Two – 7th January 2020 – 24th March 2020 (tbc)

Term Three – 14th April 2020 – 30th June 2020 (tbc)

Can I join at any time?

We offer an early bird discount of 10% if you pay in full 14 days before the start of a term and a FREE TASTER SESSION. If you are interested in joining KC Community Choir, but the term is already in full swing, our choir leader may suggest you wait a week or two until the choir is starting new material so that you’re not playing catch up. ENQUIRE NOW to see when our next rehearsal is taking place. We’d love to have you! Book your free taster session HERE.

What songs can I expect to sing?

There will be a huge variety of music and all arrangements will be uniquely tailored to KC Community Choir. Songs from the 1920s through present day in pop, rock, jazz, folk/traditional, and musical theatre can all be expected and will always be taught with enthusiasm and flexibility. It’s likely you’ll be amazed how a song you know well can suddenly sound completely different! No matter what style, the main aim of KC Community Choir is to make singing fun.
