Joining Exmouth Choral Society
Glenorchy URC is 50m towards Exeter from the Parade shops. Look for the big tree. Free parking is about a minute's walk away, after 6pm in the Union Street Car Park behind the shops.
We rehearse on Monday evenings 7.30 pm to 9.15 pm at Glenorchy United Reformed Church on Exeter Road, EX8 1PL.
The 2018-2019 season features two concerts. It started on Monday evening, September 3rd, 2018, when we were introduced to the pieces for for the Winter Concert on February 2nd 2019. The Spring Concert on May 11th 2019, which traditionally ends the season, may not this year. We are hoping to organise an extra event, on June 1st, as part of the Exmouth Festival.
You may be relieved to hear that we do not require you to undertake a formal audition. We would encourage you to attend a few rehearsals to see if the works being sung and the standard of the singing suit you before making a definite decision to join. If you decide you would like to join the Society, Laurence will check that you are singing the right part for your vocal range.
Normally, members are expected to attend 75% of rehearsals if they wish to sing in the concert. If you are unable to attend enough rehearsals, or if you do not want to sing in the concert, just let Laurence or the Secretary know your plans as soon as you can.
A year's subscription is £75 (half price for students).
There is the option of paying £37.50 for each of the 2 terms (Winter and Spring).
This fee covers our concert and rehearsal costs, including score hire.
Subs need not be paid immediately, though the Treasurer would like them all in by Half Term (Oct 22nd).
