Join Us

If you enjoy singing, why not join us? We are very friendly!

‘Part’ voices (second soprano, alto, tenor, bass) are particularly welcome. It helps if you can read music but you won’t be expected to sight read.

The choir rehearses in St Clement’s Church, Dartmouth, on Wednesday evenings from 7–9pm. Tea or coffee is available during the rehearsal break.

We are a two-term choir (September to December; January to March/April). Our fees are £35 per term. There are no additional fees for music hire except that singers taking part in the Christmas concerts need their own copy of the Oxford ‘100 Carols for Choirs’. We can usually get this for you at a discounted rate.

Come along and try us out for a few weeks, with no obligation to join. After this initial period, you can decide whether we are the choir for you.

If you decide to join us, you will need to fill in a registration form. As part of that form, you’ll be asked to select your voice part. To help, we have put together a DIY voice range check: click the links below to hear a two-octave scale appropriate to the named voice part.

Bass (from F to F)
Tenor (from A to A)
Alto (from E to E)
Soprano (G to G)
High Soprano (B flat to B flat)

Britannia Choral Society is proud to be a non-auditioned choir. It is, however, important that the Musical Director has the flexibility to place singers where they will get the most from their voice. New singers may be invited to take a quick, informal range check at a rehearsal. High sopranos will be checked up to a top B flat.
