The Choir was delighted to welcome 7 prospective members to our Open Evening on 16th May, following a very successful publicity event at the Chineham shopping centre on 7th May.
All seven ladies (5 Mezzos and 2 Altos) commented on how much they had enjoyed the rehearsal and how very welcome they were made to feel. They particularly appreciated the "buddy" system whereby a current Choir member from the same singing section volunteers to look after the prospective member for the first few weeks until they find their feet.
They were certainly put through their paces as the Choir sped through almost our whole repertoire for our upcoming concert on 18th June. Pleasingly, our prospective members commented on the high standard of our singing, which is good to hear with the concert being only 4 weeks away! 
We look forward to welcoming back our prospective members at future rehearsals and hope that they all go on to become full Choir members. 
Of course, we continue to welcome new members at any rehearsal with our open door policy. There is no need to wait for an Open Evening to join us.
