‘We are a friendly mixed choir with approx 100 members ... Our concerts include two in Eastbourne & Seaford in June & December ... Concentus means “agreement”, “harmony”, or “unity”, and this defines the very spirit of the choir ... Our Musical Director strives to ensure that harmony exists not just in the musical notes that are sung but also in the way that choir members are cared for ... What does Concentus sing? Well a little bit of everything!’

‘Founded in 1986 by members of Southampton CND who enjoyed singing, and began giving occasional concerts ... The idea evolved to have fun and to raise money for various good causes. Our original name was Concord Singers (without the 'h'), devised ... to include the letters CND. Eventually the choir was permanently constituted ... At this time we revised our name to Conchord Singers ... We are always looking for new members in all parts. There is no audition, but an ability to follow music notation and a sense of pitch are important. Do try us out at a few rehearsals before deciding to commit.’

‘If you're thinking about joining a choir, these days there are lots to choose from. As such, I try to run the Cranleigh Community Choir in the way I'd like a choir to run if I was in it myself! This means: * great music (we cover practically every musical genre) that both the choir and audiences enjoy; * the singing is purely for enjoyment, the love of singing and for the high standard performances we give in front of regular sold-out audiences - we don't do any competitions ... ; * we do two great concerts per year - one at Christmas and one in the summer plus sometimes ad hoc performances around the same time (although the ad hoc performances are optional); * we DON'T do any movements in the songs that we sing, except for one song at Christmas that our audiences now expect us to roll out each year and very, very occasionally another one if it seems appropriate! ...’

'We aim to give members the opportunity to sing together in a choir, perhaps for the first time, singing a wide repertoire from classical, world music and folk to gospel and pop. You don’t need to be able to read music to take part – it’s all explained as we go along ... Unlike many other choirs, we rehearse during the day, providing a chance to sing for those who are unable to join an evening group. Our membership therefore reflects a wide range of the community, from students, young parents, those not working during the morning, to those who are retired. There are no auditions – all adults are welcome.'

‘A Thornhill-based choir, formed in 1974, with about 40 singers ... We sing a mixture of traditional songs (folk tunes and such as those of Burns), classical choral works (typically Haydn, Handel, Mozart, Rutter and Schubert), and show tunes (recently from Guys and Dolls, West Side Story, My Fair Lady and a Beatles Medley). A few of our members can sing the notes straight off the printed sheet, but while we value those with musical skills, the most important qualification is enthusiasm and a willingness to work on your music between rehearsals. There is no audition - if you can hear a sequence of 4 or 5 notes and then sing them back, you will almost certainly be able to enjoy developing your skill from there with the choir.’

‘Based in the ancient village of Fletching, near Uckfield ... We aim to give an opportunity for amateur singers of all standards to have access to many different types of music. The choir numbers about 50 regular members, some of whom are good readers of music with considerable experience of choral singing, while others are less experienced musicians who come because they enjoy singing in congenial company, while at the same time extending their musical skills. This wide range of ability enables us to perform some of the great masterpieces of the choral repertoire, such as Bach's St John Passion or Mozart's Requiem, as well as songs from the shows, partsongs, madrigals and folksongs.’

We have even ventured into Coldplay and U2 ! ... Our philosophy, as it was when we first started, is to sing for the joy and fun of singing, and we hope our audiences will enjoy the experience too.’

We sing a wide range of choral works from all eras ... New members are always welcome. If you are interested in joining us, why not come along and take part first of all in a few rehearsals - after which you will be invited to a short, informal audition with the conductor. No-one else will be present. You'll be encouraged to sing through a few vocal exercises (and perhaps something of your own choosing) in order that he can decide how your voice will fit into the choir. This will be done in a very relaxed manner!’
