Join us!

New Members Welcome!

Do you enjoy singing? Can you count to eight? Why not give us a go? Whether or not you can read music, new members are always made very welcome and encouraged. No previous choir singing experience is necessary and there's safety and support in our numbers! With the wonders of modern technology, practice discs with emphasised parts are made available to help members learn by ear and become familiar with their individual part, be it soprano, alto, tenor or bass (SATB). Sectional rehearsals are also organised regularly but on an informal basis, usually at a member's house.

Currently, our youngest member is 15 years old (taking part alongside his mum), and some of our older members are well into their 80s. A good few of our members are in the 30-50 age bracket. Take heart! Age is no barrier! :-)

When and Where?

The choir meets during term time every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm-9.30pm at Beith Community Centre, Kings Road, Beith, North Ayrshire, Scotland.

Term dates for the 2017-2018 session are:

6th Sept - 22 Nov 2017
10th Jan - 3rd May 2018

Do come along and try us out!

If you would like to join us, please send us a message via our Contact Form or via our Facebook page. We do recommend that new members try to join us within the first 6 weeks of our term so as to reduce the amount to catching up - although this will also depend on your own experience and confidence reading music. At this point new works are still being introduced and sectional rehearsals will also be well underway to assist. 

Choir Fees

If, after a few sessions, you decide you would like to join us, there is an annual joining fee of £50 then a further £4 is collected for each week of the session (approx. 12 & 18 weeks respectively) to cover music hire, venue, instrument and musician hire for our practice sessions and performances.

Payment can be made weekly, monthly, per term (£50 + £48 + £72) or for the whole year (£50 +£120), whichever is most suitable for you.

If you are a student or unemployed, the choir funds may be able to subsidise your participation. This is treated with the strictest confidence.

Performance Attire

From September 2017, our concert attire will be a long-sleeved black blouse with black trousers/skirt and shoes/boots for ladies and black shirt, trousers and shoes for gentlemen.
