Joining Sangstream

Sangstream has a membership of roughly 60. If you’re interested in joining us please fill out the form below and we’ll invite you to one of our Thursday evening rehearsal sessions, so you have an idea of the sorts of things we do. If you’d like to join the choir after you have done this, you can sign up, or if we have no vacancies, we’ll contact you and add your details to our waiting list for the following term. There are no auditions to join Sangstream. We just ask that you turn up and give it a go!

You also don’t need to be able to read music to sing with us – although we often have sheet music available, all our songs are learnt by ear. The harmonies and parts are generally added after we’ve learnt the melody. Choir members can choose which section of the choir to join for any song.

We have an up to date database of song words and recordings available online in the members area of our website, for current choir members to download.

New members can join Sangstream at the start of a new term. Membership currently costs £44 (£24 concession) per term.

If you’d like to find out more about joining Sangstream, please fill in the form below, and Nancy, our membership secretary, will contact you.

If you’d like to meet us and find out more, why not drop in to one of our informal sessions? Some of our members meet at the Captains Bar singing session once a month. These are generally on the third Saturday of the month, and are open to anyone to drop in. Details are on our diary page.
