The choir meets every Wednesday evening during term time from 6.30 – 9.00 pm at Tall Trees Community Centre, Ilchester.
All abilities are welcome and no audition is required, the more the merrier! We just ask that you have a connection to military from one of these options:
Wife, fiancée or cohabiting partner of serving British armed forces personnel
Serving or retired British military personnel
Immediate family of serving British armed forces personnel i.e. mother, sister or daughter
Wife, fiancée or co-habiting partner of veteran British armed forces personnel
Wife, fiancée or co-habiting partner of serving non-British armed forces personnel on UK postings
Civilian employees employed within the military community who provide a direct service to aid the welfare of serving military personnel and their families
All eligible choir members are welcomed to come and join us in rehearsals for up to three ‘taster sessions’ before having to decide whether or not they want to commit to being a regular choir member. The first taster session is free & the following two sessions are £2.50 per week (payable on the day).
If after a maximum of three taster sessions, you chose to ‘join the choir’ you will need to fill in an application form (available at rehearsals), make a joining fee payment of £5 and establish a standing order for £10 per month which will give you full membership of the choir and cover the cost of attendance at the weekly rehearsals. Signed up members will receive a music folder to keep.
Childcare can be provided by prior arrangement with Tall Trees. Fees are payable by those who use it.
New Starters Nights
Our choir rehearsals will resume at the start of each school term on a Wednesday at 7pm until 9pm. Every September we have our AGM followed by some singing. All current members are encouraged to attend this important meeting and further details on this will follow.
Events permitting, we try & make the last Wednesday of every month New Starters Night. Please contact us to check this by emailing the address below.
Please also note that we do usually break for half term & the end of terms but if we have events coming up quickly on our return, we will sometimes arrange for extra rehearsals during this time. We do however, appreciate that not everyone can attend these so you are not under any pressure to attend.
