Cherwell Choral Society
INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS
For all enquiries about membership please contact the Membership Secretary.
We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.45 to 9.30 in the Longford Park Community Centre in Bodicote. Click here for a map.
There are no auditions, and prospective members are invited to attend 2 or 3 rehearsals before paying Subs to see how they get on.
We perform 3 or 4 concerts a year in either Bloxham or Deddington and there are occasional workshops or 'come and sing' events.
We ask that all those intending to sing in a concert meet a minimum level of attendance. As a general rule this is 75% as well as the rehearsal on the afternoon of the concert.
Subs are payable each term, and vary depending on the length of the rehearsal period. The subs are set at a level to cover the society's fixed costs i.e. all the non-concert costs. These are not insignificant, and include rehearsal venue hire, Music Director's fee, Repetiteur's fee, annual insurance, website, library membership and music hire fees.
Members are encouraged to pay their subs online but can also pay by cheque/cash at a rehearsal.
Please contact the Treasurer for the Society's banking details.
The cost of music hire is included in the termly subscription. Members are responsible for returning their copies after the concert, with all markings erased.
Those who wish to use their own copies must have the appropriate edition.
