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.
We stage two major concerts a year - Spring and Autumn - at St Mary's Church Hadleigh, along with a summer programme of lighter music and a celebration of Christmas. For our full members' calendar, including term dates, go to: Calendar
Rehearsals are held during term-time on Tuesday evenings, 7.30-9.30pm at The Ansell Centre, Market Place, Hadleigh, with an occasional Saturday morning rehearsal.
Dress code for our major concerts:
Ladies: long black skirt or smart black trousers and long-sleeved black top
Gentlemen: Dinner jacket and bow tie
Membership is just £150, £15 for students - and covers all our concert venues, music, orchestra and soloists.
This year, we are delighted to be offering a special rate of £25 for the first term for new members, including lapsed members who are returning after a 3-year (pre-Covid) break.
