AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE CHORAL SOCIETY
To perform four or more choral concerts per year in the area.
To offer training in choral singing whilst exploring a wide repertoire of choral music and promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of singing.
To perform concerts which involve and promote the best possible soloists and orchestra within financial resources, including providing opportunities for new talent.
To explore ways of extending membership and reaching new audiences.
To raise funds to finance these activities from subscriptions, ticket sales, donations and other promotions.
During our musical year we perform four concerts:
April: 1st main concert
June: Summer concert
November: 2nd main concert
December: Carol service
Exact dates can always be found on the website.
Throughout the year rehearsals are on Fridays at 7.30 – 9.30 pm at Trinity Baptist Church, 206 Poulton Rd. Fleetwood, FY7 7LB.
In order that rehearsals run smoothly and efficiently, choir members are respectfully reminded to remain silent while the conductor is practising with other vocal parts.
Always have a pencil to hand and mark your score when indicated by the Music Director.
The last rehearsal before a concert is held at the venue of the concert.
All music required is provided by the choir. It is handed out by the librarians and must be returned in good condition to the librarians when requested.
Where music has to be hired a small charge will be required to cover the costs.
