Our members are drawn from many communities around Cambridge, especially the local villages of Histon and Impington. There are no auditions to join the Choir, though being able to read music, even if not very well, is obviously an advantage!
We meet for rehearsals on Wednesday evenings, 7:30pm - 9:45pm at Histon Baptist Church. We have a short break for refreshments (and chat!) and some of our members have been seen afterwards in the 'Red Lion' in Histon.
Please note: in the last few years numbers singing in the choir have risen. In order to maintain safe (and comfortable) capacity at our rehearsal and performance venue, we will be restricting total numbers in future. For each new season, we will process applications on a 'first-come, first-served' basis
To avoid disappointment, we would ask you please not to just turn up at a rehearsal. If you would like to sing with us, we recommend contacting us initially via the e-mail given on our 'Contacts' page (click here) to check whether there are still places available.
There is a basic enrolment fee of £20.00 p.a. at the beginning of the season. (Couples who are both members of the choir will only pay a single enrolment fee of £20 and new members who join later
in the season pay a reduced enrolment fee.)
There is also a participation fee of £30.00 (£35.00 summer term only) for each full term of rehearsals and two performances.
For those who pay for the full year in advance there is a £5.00 reduction.
At the discretion of the Committee, in special circumstances, all or part of the fees may be waived for a member.
