Call out to experienced Choristers
The Tudor Choristers is holding Open Rehearsals - Wednesdays 31/1 and 7/2 at 7:30 in Auburn
If this repertoire excites you as much as it does us, and you would like to see if our auditioned choir would suit you, please RSVP to these two events and then come along. We will email you a zip file with rehearsal scores so that you can come prepared.
Which voice parts are you seeking?
Like many other Choirs, we would love to gather some more Tenors and Basses; however we are keen to meet all voice parts. There's no harm in coming along and seeing if we are a good fit for each other
What sort of commitment would I be making?
We'd love to have choristers all year and we recognise that doesn't always work out. So we would ask that you commit to a whole concert series at a time (e.g. Sorrow and Solace) as a minimum and the whole year if you can.
What is the fee structure?
We like to keep it really simple...
$300 per annum
$75 per concert series (e.g. Sorrow and Solace)
We are definitely not the most expensive choir to join and whilst we are a registered Not for Profit association, we are also keen to be Not for Loss and may raise the fees a little in future years.
