Is there an audition? Will I have to sing by myself?
No auditions. No solos.
"I can't sing" - "I've never been in a choir before" Can I join?
Yes. We have people of all abilities in the choir and any many of them said the exact same thing when they joined. To be completely honest if you are looking for an 'easy' choir - there are many more out there that might be better suited to you. But if you are up for a challenge, we can get you achieving amazing things - no matter about your previous experience or ability.
