WE REHEARSE during normal school term times at Southampton Friends' Meeting House (in Ordnance Road) on Fridays from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. with a 10-minute 'tea break' for socialising.

NEW MEMBERS: We welcome new members. There is no audition, but an ability to follow music notation and a sense pf pitch are important. We encourage new members to come along for a few rehearsals before they decide to commit.

SUBSCRIPTIONS: Subscriptions are paid twice yearly, in September and February. We aim to cover our costs (including refreshments at rehearsals) so that profits from concerts can be given to a charity chosen by the choir. We have a graduated subscription rate: wage-earners and 'comfortably off' retired people, 75; other retired, 50; people on low incomes, benefits, etc., 25; full-time school students, no charge. The choice of rate is entirely up to individual members. Subscriptions also cover the cost of music hire. We can acquire music at discount rates if members wish to buy their own copies.
