Adult Choir - September 2018

The choir kicks off again on Monday 17th September for an 8 week term.

We are rehearsing in the lecture hall under Christ Church, Rathgar. This hall is under the main church building.

Rehearsals start at 7.30pm but we ask everyone to attend a few minutes early so that we can start promptly. If you attend late you may have difficulty gaining access to the building as the door locks.

The term is 8 weeks. Monday September 17th - Monday November 12th. There will be no choir session on Monday 29th October.

The fee is €80 for the block of 8 sessions. You can sign up on the Sign up now page.

Looking forward to another great choir term.

Kindest regards,

Where is 'The Choir by TMI' being held?

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.
