Join the Choir

Would you like to experience the thrill of singing with a large choir that has been making great choral music for 100+ years?
Would you like to sing with friendly people who love singing, too?
Would you like to benefit from expert training from a leading choral conductor?

We…

  • are a welcoming, friendly choir
  • perform in major venues with top orchestras and soloists
  • provide two hours of superb choral training each week with our charismatic conductor, Adrian Lucas
  • offer support including contribution towards singing tuition for young / new choir members

You…

Singing in Gloucester Cathedral

  • have probably sung in a choir before
  • can read musical notation and sight-sing to some extent
  • will be able to attend at least 75% of rehearsals held on Tuesdays from September to May/ June

That sounds great!

Adrian [Lucas] is an entertaining director, making rehearsals really enjoyable

Please contact the membership secretary by filling in our contact form, selecting the Joining the choir area of enquiry, so that you can be given further information.  We rehearse on Tuesdays from 6.30  – 8.30 pm.

Alternatively, simply turn up on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30pm (September to May/June), at the Friends Meeting House at The Priory Rooms in Bull Street, Birmingham City Centre and ask for Jill or George. 

When you are ready an audition will be arranged for you. For this you will need to sing a song of your choice, that you have prepared, and be able to demonstrate some sight-singing ability.
