We rehearse every Tuesday evening in Bristol City Centre, from 7.30pm to 9.30 pm (7pm in the run-up to major performances.
As a community group, we don't audition - anyone is able to join, regardless of experience or ability, and we use a variety of methods to learn new material; you don't have to be able to read music. We have a wide repertoire, singing pieces from a multitude of genres and we welcome song ideas from choir members.
We also meet socially – the choir provides a social network for those who want an alternative to the bar scene, and people quickly form friendships that extend beyond the rehearsal space. We have a social team who organise official events but there are also many smaller events organised within the membership.
As a potential new member, you’ll attend a new members' evening organised by the membership team. We hold three such evenings throughout the year - normally:
The evenings are divided into five sections:
Most community groups and choirs charge a subscription fee. At Sing Out Bristol we give new members two free rehearsals (in addition to the new members evening) to decide whether the choir is really for them.
If you decide to join, our subscription fee is currently: £20 per month payable by standing order
*This fee covers up to 3 weekend workshops throughout the year and additional sectional rehearsals leading up to our annual concert. If you are unable to meet this financial commitment, we'd be happy to discuss other arrangements with you..
We are seeking new trustees with:
The structure of the choir
The management committee is responsible for the governance of the choir and charity. It typically comprises two co-chairs of differing gender identity, a secretary, a treasurer, a communications coordinator, a membership secretary, an outreach coordinator and a number of general trustees, up to a total membership of twelve.
Alongside governance, the choir’s main activities are coordinated by an impressive creative team. Led by our skilled music director, the team of volunteers achieves an annual concert, many smaller performances, Little Sing Out (our rent-a-choir), development and choralography workshops, social events and much more.
We are still interested in co-opting up to five posts to the current committee:
•Two General Trustees
•A co-chair to work with our existing male chair (of differing gender identity)
The recruitment process is simple: decide that you want to join Sing Out Bristol as a trustee; complete and send in a nomination form as soon as possible,
The choir has recently decided to open trustee recruitment to supporters of Sing Out Bristol – we are excited that new people will join us. If you’re a supporter and keen to find out more, please get in touch with us by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org
