GBRT Adult Vocal Choir

With over 70 registered members, the GBRT Adult Vocal Choir is a friendly and fun community choir singing hits from the West End and light easy-listening music. Anyone aged 18 or over is welcome to join. No previous singing experience is required – you simply need to be able to hold a tune, follow music and have bags of enthusiasm.

When And Where?

The Choir rehearses on the second and fourth and occasionally fifth Sundays of each month, in term time, from 7-8.30pm at Meadowdale Primary School in Market Harborough.

What Does It Cost?

£35 per term, payable one term in advance. This covers the cost of venue hire, music and our musical director and accompanist.

Full details of how and when to pay are included on the rehearsal dates documents above.

How Do I Join?

For practical reasons, such as fitting into the rehearsal venue, the Adult Vocal Choir has a waiting list for new sopranos and altos but new basses and tenors are always welcome. To be added to the waiting list, simply complete the online Adult Vocal Choir registration form. We will then contact you when a place becomes available to provide joining dates and further information.
