Rehearsals

Rehearsals

Practice night is Tuesday - 7.30pm.  We only practise on the days shown below.

IMPORTANT: During the current Corona virus pandemic we're meeting online, 7.30pm until 8.10pm (UK-time, BST - that's an 18:30 UCT/GMT start) on Tuesdays.  It's free of charge during the lockdown period and guests are very welcome! If you'd like to join us, send a message via this website and we'll email you the instructions how to join the conversation. Usually we run a second session from 8.15pm so that we can talk after the rehearsal.  Watch a sample rehearsal here.  (This is the first of several months' worth of online rehearsals ... they've improved since then. Each one is different and has its own style and format.)

Next rehearsals:
Tuesday 6th October 2020, 7.30pm online via Zoom
Tuesday 13th October 2020, 7.30pm online via Zoom
Tuesday 20th October 2020, 7.30pm online via Zoom
Tuesday 27th October 2020, 7.30pm online via Zoom

No rehearsals on Tuesdays 22 or 29 September. We'll resume our weekly 7.30pm Tuesday evening choir sessions via Zoom on Tuesday 6th October 2020, although there may be a surprise video offering before then.

If you're new to Zoom, please try to sign up and set it up on your device before we start the rehearsal. It works on phones, tablets and computers.  Please set up your device and yourself somewhere quiet, where you have a bit of space to move around, and where you can see the screen whether you're sitting or standing. You don't need a microphone or camera on your device to take part in the rehearsal, unless you want to contribute to the chat afterwards. If you're on wi-fi, then you'll get a better/faster connection if you're near to the router.

Each session begins with some warm-up exercises for a few minutes and then we'll work on a piece. You'll usually see the music on the screen so you won't need any printed music, unless you're using a tiny mobile phone screen. Where possible, we'll provide links in advance to let you print the music, if you'd prefer it on paper. Finally, there'll be some time at the end for general discussion.

(During more normal times, our sessions are in the conservatory at The Fox and Hounds, Lulsley, WR6 5QT. Sessions normally run for 70-75 minutes, without a break, and the cost is £2 per session. Sometimes there's a discount if you pay for the whole term in advance.)
