Frequently asked questions
Here are our FAQs. If you have a question that isn't listed here then please get in touch now!
Do I have to audition?
Nope! Our choirs are open to all! So whether you think you're a good singer or not, why don't you come and give it a try!
Do you use sheet music?
Nope! We don't believe anyone should be excluded from singing just because they don't read sheet music! We learn by ear and use lyric sheets.
What sort of music do you sing?
We sing pop songs that you know and love from the charts. Some of them are new, some of them are old, but they're all really good fun!
What age do you have to be?
Our choirs are aged 18+ and we have a really big mix of ages from 18 through to 60+. So as long as you're over 18, you're good to go! And no... you're not too old ;)
How much does it cost?
Your first session at choir is free! After that we have three payment options: annual, termly, or monthly. You can check out the details for these here.
Do you run during term time?
We usually run during term time. We meet for 38 weeks of the year and break for half terms, Christmas, Easter & Summer. We break a week earlier than the schools in December to have a social!
Do you perform?
Yes! We love to go busking and perform at local events, especially to help raise money for charity. Performances are not mandatory. If you have an event you'd like the choir to perform at then get in touch!
Should I sing Alto, Soprano or something else?
Our choirs are split into 3 sections main sections: tops, middles & bottoms! The middles generally take the melody of a song, bottoms sing lower and tops sing higher. But if you're still not sure, we can help you decide.
Where do you rehearse?
Our Tuesday & Thursday York choirs rehearse at The Hive in Manor CE School, Millfield Lane, Nether Poppleton, YO26 6PA. If you park up at the school and then look towards the top right corner of the car park, you'll see our signs directing you to our room.
Our Monday Choir rehearse at Bishopthorpe Sports & Social Club.
