Helston Chamber Choir currently meets every Tuesday from 7.00pm – 9.00pm in:
St Michael’s Church
Helston TR13 8GT
We are a mixed-voice choir, singing a wide variety of mainly classical repertoire from all eras, and in different languages. We do not hold auditions, and welcome new potential members to come and try us out for a few weeks before committing to join us. We provide rehearsal files (CDs and/or mp3 files) at a small cost for those who find them helpful for learning new repertoire.
Our year consists of two terms each about 18 weeks long, culminating in twice yearly concerts usually in Jan/Feb, and June/July. We sometimes perform the same programme twice; one in St. Michael’s Church, Helston, and a second at a different venue. The cost, to members, is very reasonable – currently £45 per term (approximately £2.80 per 2 hour rehearsal).
Music scores are provided subject to a small returnable deposit, and members may have the option of purchasing their own copies.
We are affiliated to Making Music, and administered by an annually elected committee at our Annual General Meeting.
The choir is a Registered Charity No: 1116483, and tax-paying members are encouraged to sign a Gift Aid Declaration on their subscriptions, which significantly boosts the choir’s funds. We have also received funding from Helston Town Council.
