Joining the Choir

Stowmarket Chorale is an ambitious and enthusiastic choir with a long history of promoting choral music to a wide audience. Leslie Olive has been our Director of Music since 2002 and during that time we have performed a wide repertoire in a variety of venues as well as our regular appearances at St Peter and St Mary’s Church and the John Peel Centre for Creative Arts.

The Chorale is keen to recruit experienced choral singers in all parts. There are most vacancies for tenors, basses and second sopranos, and a smaller number for capable altos and first sopranos. If you would like to see what singing in the choir is like, you can come to rehearsals without commitment for two or three weeks before applying to join.

There is a short, friendly audition taken by Director of Music Leslie Olive which will include some simple sight reading.

Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from September to July during term time at Chilton Primary School, Stowmarket, from 7.30-9.30 pm.

If you are interested in joining us, please email Mary Payne, Secretary.
