Chantage is a choir like no other. There is no joining fee or subscription. You do not need to be following a career in music to be eligible to join.
We do ask for extensive previous singing/choral experience, a good level of sight reading, and strong commitment. You will need to be able to attend weekly evening rehearsals, ad hoc rehearsals at weekends when necessary and be available for a range of performance opportunities throughout the year.
The rewards for this commitment are great. Chantage offers a varied repertoire that is both challenging and enjoyable. We welcome guest conductors to perform with us. We commission new works. We perform at world renowned venues.
The social life of the choir is also very important, in order to create the vibrant team environment that allows us to sing, blend and express ourselves as a group. Chantage is a growing choir and we are often on the look out for new talent to join the ranks!
What experience do you need?
- You need to have an extensive singing background
- a good level of sight-reading
- ideally be aged between 20 to 35
Prospective new singers are invited to one of our weekly rehearsals where they would have a brief, informal audition with our conductor James Davey prior to being asked to join the rehearsal.
At the audition, prospective singers would be expected to perform a short section of a pre-prepared piece (unaccompanied) and asked to sight-read a short excerpt of previously unseen music. If you are interested in joining Chantage, please fill out this short form to send us your details.
