Calling all singers! The Royal Choral Society is looking for new members across all voice parts so if you fancy singing in a vibrant, versatile and busy choir then why not come and try us out?
Come along to our Open Rehearsal on Monday 12 February 2018 where you can sing Handel's Messiah with us and find out more about the choir. The rehearsal runs from 6.30–8.30pm followed by wine and you can mingle with current members and find out how we operate. If you enjoy the evening, then we can fix a date for a straightforward audition with our Music Director Richard Cooke (usually on a Monday before rehearsal) and you could be a member of the Royal Choral Society in time for our Messiah concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Good Friday (an annual concert since 1876). For more details of our Open Rehearsal just visit our website or email us to book your place.
We rehearse every Monday (with Easter, Christmas and summer breaks) from 6.30–8.30pm at the City of London School for Girls in London’s Barbican. If you can’t make the 12 February Open Rehearsal then there will be rehearsals before Easter that we will open up to potential new members. All details will be on our website.
The choir was formed for the opening of the Royal Albert Hall in 1871 and we are proud of our history and connections to some of the biggest names in classical music. Our 2017/18 season includes Handel’s Messiah at the Royal Albert Hall, Fauré Requiem + Bernstein Chichester Psalms at Cadogan Hall and Handel's Israel in Egypt at Southwark Cathedral, plus Beating Retreat on Horse Guards Parade with the Household Division. We have some exciting plans for 2019 and beyond, including the choir’s 150th anniversary.
We are a friendly bunch and love to welcome new members.
