We don't hold auditions, but some knowledge of music and an ability to read music is definitely an advantage. Most important is a commitment to practice and regular attendance at our weekly rehearsals. If you'd like to give us a try, come along to a couple of rehearsals - no charge - and see if it's for you.
This short film, albeit recorded a few years ago, documents the collective effort of our concert day, from the arrival of the staging in the morning, afternoon rehearsal and performance of Schubert's E-flat Mass and Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, to the return of the church to its original state, ready for the Sunday morning service!
