What's the cost?
The total cost for the 8 weeks is €80. That's only €10 per choir session.
This cost covers room rental and supply of choir notes & music for the 8 weeks.
Do I need to pay upfront?
We need to know numbers from the outset. A choir is only possible if we have sufficient participants and we feel the best way to ensure people definitely show up to the first night is to take payment in advance. This works in the interests of all choir members.
What if I can't attend a certain choir session?
Unfortunately the fee cannot be refunded. We have kept the fee to the absolute minimum to cover the cost of facilitating the choir and as such we need members fees to keep the choir going!
The only exception to this refund policy is if the choir is cancelled by us and this will only occur if we have a lack of numbers so help us spread the word by telling your friends, colleagues & family members!
Do I need to be able to read music to attend?
No. There is no requirement to be able to read music (sight read). Sarah will work at a pace that allows people to pick it up by ear. She will also play through all the different line parts during rehearsals.
Anything else I should know?
Yes two things!
1. The more people the better. ThIs is a community initiative so please spread the word. The choir only works if we have enough people to really 'raise the roof' so to speak!
2. If there is interest we will book an area in the nearby 108 pub post choir sessions for a debrief with your fellow singers.
