How to Join Us


The West Devon Chorale is a high standard, auditioned chamber choir. To join the choir it is necessary to attend an audition. This will take place on a Friday evening immediately before the first rehearsal prior to a concert, in Christ Church, Leypark Walk, Estover, Plymouth. PL6 8UE (please see rehearsals page for details of forthcoming dates)

The Choir’s present strength is 10 sopranos, 9 altos, 9 tenors and 8 basses.

The Music Director is always looking for experienced choristers with very good sight-reading skills who wish to be involved in a choir which rehearses on an occasional basis only. Those selected to sing with the choir will be those who enjoy working in an intensive choral environment.

It is essential that choristers attend each rehearsal before each concert unless in exceptional circumstances.

Membership is by subscription either per concert or on an annual basis. There are no music hire charges.

Audition

Intending members should prepare a suitable solo piece which displays the range and quality of their voice. In additional there will be vocal exercises and sight reading. Following the audition intending members will be invited to remain for the rehearsal after which they will be informed as to whether or not they were successful.
