How do I join?

You are welcome to attend rehearsals, which are held from 4pm to 7pm on Sundays at Burgate Church Hall. We do not hold formal auditions – we reckon that after a few weeks you will know whether you’re going to enjoy it or not. If you do decide you’d like to sing with us, there is an annual membership fee of £100, payable in two instalments.  Concessions may be available.

How to get there:

Directions: From the A143, Bury St Edmunds – Great Yarmouth road, turn off in the village of Wortham, taking the road towards Mellis and Burgate. In about one mile, turn right, signposted Burgate. Shortly afterwards, you come to a T-junction. Burgate Church hall is in front of you, just to the right. (Please note that it is at some distance from the church).


What kind of singers are you looking for?

We are always looking for new members. Male voices are often in short supply and so are especially welcome. Experience of singing in a choir is not strictly necessary, just enthusiasm and a commitment to showing up for rehearsals. You will not be expected to sight-read, but the ability to read music is an advantage. Some members learn their parts with the help of recordings.

Do you rehearse all year? And how do I get the music?

The choir meets from late August or early September, weekly until June. We usually stage two concerts a year. The evening before a concert, there is generally an extra rehearsal, then a full rehearsal at the venue on concert days. We hire the music for each concert, which costs about £2.50 per score.
