We meet every Wednesday evening in Hedge End to rehearse with Simon Irwin, our Musical Director. Our rehearsals are always fun – you can follow some of the highlights on Twitter @WestEndSingers – and we enjoy getting to grips with the huge variety of music that we perform. Halfway through we have a break for coffee/tea and biscuits – or occasionally cake if it’s someone’s birthday! It’s no obstacle if you don’t read music – only around half our members do.
We’re a four-part harmony choir and typically perform two main concerts, usually in June and December, as well as up to eight other engagements per year. Our performances are always from memory, which allows us to engage fully with the audience and with Simon.
If you’re interested in coming along to join us, please do! We encourage new members to sit in on a rehearsal before applying to join – that way you can see what we’re like, the atmosphere of the rehearsal, and the type of music we might sing. Find out some more about what it’s like to be in West End Singers.
