No, although it helps to have some knowledge, it isn’t necessary.
Our musical team will be able to assess your range after a few practice sessions and then place you into the appropriate section.
We sing a range of numbers, from traditional male voice choir hymns, to songs from the musicals.
We have our own digital library which has copies of the music sheets we use and audio files for the voice parts for all our songs. This is especially useful for practising outside of official Monday practice.
We strive to organise around 10-12 concerts each year, with plenty of advance notice given.
Yes, we all wear a specific suit which is organised through Slaters in Cardiff and costs £108 (at the time of writing). Ties, pocket handkerchiefs and badges are provided.
You are responsible for your own travel for local concerts. For concerts further afield, coach transport is provided, which is subsidised by choir funds, but can mean a contribution is necessary.
Where possible, accommodation costs will be met by choir funds, but if this is not possible, choristers are required to pay for their own accommodation. Costs are always detailed in good time to enable choristers to decide if they are able to attend.
An afterglow is a post-concert event, involving impromptu singing, a buffet and drinks. This is usually attended by other artistes or choirs performing in the concert.
There is no joining fee, but we do ask for an annual subscription of £120 to help pay for the upkeep of the choir. Each member is also required to become a member of Croesyceiliog Rugby and Cricket Club as the venue allow us to practice in the function room. The cost is £8 for OAPs and £15 for non OAPs. Many members of the choir enjoy a refreshing drink after practice each week.
