Audience at Aberdeen Bach Choir Performance 28 April 2019

How to Join

Aberdeen Bach Choir is especially keen to recruit new singers, particularly male voices. Currently, there is no audition process - an ability to sing in tune is the minimum requirement! Because we have a rule that you must not miss more than three rehearsals, we are not accepting any new singers for the April 2020 performance. Anyone interested in joining the choir in August for the December performance should contact the Membership Secretary – by email in advance.

The April 2020 concert will take place on Sunday 26 Apri.l We will be performing Bach's St Matthew Passion with Aberdeen Sinfonietta and St Margaret's School for Girls Chamber Choir and a stellar cast of soloist.

The Choir rehearses every Tuesday from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.We begin rehearsals on Tuesday 7 Jasnuary 2020 at High Church, Hilton. and rehearsals will continue there every Tuesday until close to the concert, when the venue will change to St Machar's Cathedral. There will be a two week break for the school Easter holidays.

The yearly subscription for 2019-20 is £60 or £45 (concessions). Students are free! Newcomers are allowed two or three weeks settling in before confirming their membership and being asked to pay their subscription. There is normally a small charge for music hire (£6 this session), or you can buy the music for some performances (£13 for the St Matthew).

Members are expected to participate in all rehearsals (those missing more than three rehearsals must ask permission of the Musical Director to sing in the performance). Attendance at rehearsals on the weekend of the performance is essential and absence will be allowed only under exceptional circumstances.

The performance will take place on Sunday 26 April at the earlier than usual time of 5:00 pm in St Machar's Cathedral, with an extended interval. There will be rehearsals on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 April - arrangements still to be confirmed.

We like to think of ourselves as a friendly choir, and if you make yourself known to one of our Committee members (the Membership Secretary, Sandra Massey, is likely to approach any new faces who have not already contacted her), we will ensure you are introduced to someone who sings the same part as you, to help you fit in quickly.
