Be a Pink Singer!
Applications are now open! We’ve already had a lot of demand for places, so we’re only looking to audition for the Alto section at the moment. You’re still welcome to express your interest and we’ll make a note for next season. Please complete the following form and we’ll be in touch.
The Qs and the As
What kind of music do you do?
We perform a diverse range of music which includes everything from classical to pop to madrigals to gospel, show tunes and folk.
Do I have to audition?
Yes. The audition comprises of a number of parts. You will be asked to sing some basic scales to ascertain which section the musical team think would best suit you. You will then do an ear test and a memory test.
Do I have to pay anything?
Yes. There is a subscription fee to pay which covers the cost of music and room hire. We also offer subsidised rates for people on low income.
When and where do you rehearse?
We rehearse every Sunday from 2-6pm in the Kennington / Elephant and Castle area. We ideally like you to attend all rehearsals, but 80% is the minimum we’re looking for.
Do I need to practice?
Yes. We memorise all our songs/choreography so we can perform without music. Don’t worry if that sounds hard – everyone’s in the same boat, but you will need to practice. It looks amazing when it all comes together!
Is there a social element to the choir?
Oh yes! We’re a very sociable group! The Sunday rehearsal is usually followed by drinks at a pub nearby and there are many other events throughout the year to cater for all tastes!
So what are you waiting for? If you think you are interested in joining the choir or have any other questions about becoming a Pink Singer that are not answered above, please feel free to drop me a line, I would love to hear from you. Feel free to browse the rest of the site and read the Pinkies’ views to get even more of an insight and see how much fun we have.
Thanks and best wishes,
Membership Secretary 2018/19
