Rehearsals take place at Christ Church, Wellington most Monday evenings during academic term times between 7.15 and 9:15pm. Fees are ¬£30.00 per 10 week term but you won’t need to pay just to try us out for a couple of sessions. We are a very friendly choir and new members are always made welcome.

The choir comprises 4 main voices, Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass although, for certain pieces of music, we may split each voice further into 1st and 2nd voices e.g. Soprano 1 and Soprano 2.

If you want to try the voices out for yourself you can play the samples below. These are the commonly considered theoretical range of each voice but don’t worry if you can’t reach the notes at either end because we very rarely sing anything which requires any voice to hit these extremes. Try these out and find where you are most comfortable then have a go at the voice samples below for the first few choral bars of Mozart’s Ave verum corpus below them. Play the full choir version first then experiment with the individual voices.

Click on the light coloured arrow to the left of each dark bar to start the music sample.

If you still have difficulty fitting your voice in – don’t worry the voices overlap in actual practice and you will always get friendly and helpful advice from the members of the choir. Come along – give it a go but you might be advised to check via Email the choir¬†beforehand to make sure we are rehearsing on the evening you’ve chosen as we do only meet in term time.
