Audience at Aberdeen Bach Choir Performance 28 April 2019

How to Join

Choir rehearsals recommenced after our Christmas break on Tuesday 10th January 2023 at High Hilton Parish Church. Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 9:30pm (Aug-Dec & Jan-Apr), and they include a short tea/coffee break. We will look forward to welcoming new members to sing with us in August when we start rehearsals for our December concert. No new members will now be accepted for the April concert.

We are by no means all expert musicians or sight readers, but if you are able to sing accurately and in tune and have a secure sense of rhythm and a familiarity with musical notation you may enjoy the experience of rehearsing and performing with us.

Regular attendance throughout the season is important. If you are unable to attend a rehearsal, please inform our Membership Secretary, Sandra Massey. Even if you are very familiar with a work we are singing, we all need to understand how our Musical Director wishes us to interpret the music. For this reason, we encourage members to attend regularly and not to miss more than four Tuesday rehearsals in any one term, or they may risk forfeiting their place at the performance. Attendance at both rehearsals on the weekend of the performance is essential, other than in exceptional circumstances.

The annual subscription for 2022/23 was confirmed at the Annual General Meeting as £60 or £45 (concessions). Students are free. Newcomers are allowed 2-3 weeks to settle in before confirming their membership and being asked to pay their subscription. There is normally a small charge for music hire, or you may be asked to buy the music for some performances.

We like to think of ourselves as a friendly choir and we will do our best to ensure you are introduced to someone who sings the same part as you, to help you fit in quickly. Your first point of contact, our Membership Secretary (Sandra Massey), is usually on hand at rehearsals to approach and welcome new singers.

Your section representative is your next point of contact.
