Current Choral activities

We've been delighted to welcome some new members this session. We are currently rehearsing for our Autumn concert, to be held on Sunday 19th November, in Drumossie Hotel, Inverness. Prospective members will now need to wait until our new January term to join.

Our Christmas Carolthon will be held on Saturday 16th December in Eastgate Centre. Why not come along and hear a flavour of what you could join us in singing next term?

DIRECTIONS to rehearsal venue: The address for rehearsals on Mondays at 7.30pm is

Smithton-Culloden Free Church
Murray Road

Smithton is situated to the east of Inverness, off the A96 Nairn (Aberdeen) road. Leaving Inverness, turn right at the second roundabout and continue up Barn Church Road. Turn right into Tower Road (at second traffic light junction). Continue through a set of lights (pedestrian). Half way up the hill turn right into Murray Road, and Smithton Free Church is first on the left. There is plenty of parking. You might be wise to check the location on Google Map so that you know the way. There are of course other routes which may be better for you.

Would you like to sing with us?
New members are always welcome.  As stated above, the best time to join is at the beginning of one of the Sessions, i.e. in August or in January. There are no auditions as such - just a short voice test to make sure you are singing the correct part for your voice. If it has been a while since you last did any singing, don't worry, most people 'find their voices' again after a few rehearsals. Remember to bring a pencil with an eraser on the end for noting Gordon's instructions.

You do not need to be expert at reading music, but it is necessary to at least be able to follow it and take note of the conductor's instructions during the rehearsal.

REHEARSALS are held on Monday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 pm.  We have a short juice break around 8.30 pm (juice available for 40p) and a chance to get to know other choir members. You are expected to attend every rehearsal - if you miss more than three, you will not be able to sing in the concert.

Membership subscription is £110 for the year, £25 for under 25s.  There is a reduced price of £55/£12.50 respectively for new members who join in January, i.e. half way through the year. Once you have joined however, you are not permitted to subsequently pay for only half the year!

Music may be purchased or hired.
