Now is the ideal time for new members to join and learn new songs with us.
Just read on.
Do you enjoy singing? The Sussex Gruffs are always looking to recruit new members. Membership is open to all. You don't need to audition or read music, (at least half the choir can't), but what is needed is a love of singing and wanting to learn. Each time we start to learn new repertoire, our Musical Director records all 4 parts for each song (Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Baritone and Bass) and these are distributed on CDs to each member of the choir. This means that you can look at the sheet music AND listen to what it should sound like - essential when you are not singing the tune. These tracks are also available in mp3 format and can be loaded onto PCs, Laptops, Tablets, iPods and many smartphones and car sound systems, making it much easier for members to learn their parts.
So let’s take you through what happens if you decide to join us after the open evening.
If you arrive around 6.50 p.m. (practice starts promptly at 7.00pm) we will have time to meet you and do some introductions. Practice ends at 9pm.
Dont worry if you have never sung in a choir before, we'll teach you all you need to know. We sing in harmony, bass, baritone, tenor one and tenor two's. If you are not sure what section you should be in, our musical director will help, but don't worry, there are no auditions and you don't have to sing in front of anyone. When you arrive, we will give you a folder which contains all our music (they are expensive, so remain choir property) so that you can join in straight away.
Subs are £3 a week plus a yearly subscription of £10.00. This includes all your sheet music and audio learning tracks.
If you want to give it a try, come along, we can promise you good fun and the chance to make a host of new friends. If you missed our open evening come any Tuesday evening.
We rehearse every Tuesday night in the Sanditon Conference Centre of Worthing College BN149FD. Click on the postcode to see the location in Google Maps or download maps in pdf format below.
