Regular weekly rehearsals are held on Tuesdays during term time at 7:30pm for a 7:45 prompt start at All Saint's School.

Our Christmas Concerts are at Acorn Drive on 4th, and then the church concert on 9th December at Corpus Christi Wokingham.

The Choir AGM was held on 16th October at All Saints' School, Wokingham.

Our Music Director, Karen Phillips, joined us in September 2015. Please see her short intro on the Music Director's page

AGM minutes and committee minutes are posted on the website, link below, and Committee details are on the contacts page.

For information on members, please see the MembersOnly pages

For the minutes of meetings including the AGM, please see the MembersOnly pages.

Term dates and planned events for 2018-2019 are listed below.

Please see the Music Director's page for details of music for the recent concert and rehearsal plans.

There's a link to photos taken at the Summer Concert on the Events pages.

Checkout the latest Noteworthy practice files. Note that the practice files for the 2018 autumn season are being uploaded. Please keep checking via the MembersOnly pages and make sure you have the latest versions.

You can access the MembersOnly pages using your username and password.

Some members are trying out NoteWorthy as a music notation tool to help rehearse. There is now also support for Noteworthy Viewer on the PortableApps package. Please note that the latest version of the Viewer is 2.75 (at November 2018) which now includes in the player the ability to mute one or more sections, and to alter the pitch, which may be useful.

Version 2 of the Noteworthy viewer provides the option to play back the files at a slower speed, which may help you, so I'd encourage you to upgrade from earlier versions. The upgrade is done simply by installing the new version, still available at no charge.
See the details on on the MembersOnly pages, and you can get the latest version from the NoteWorthy Composer Viewer site.

Photos from previous Summer Concerts and other events are posted on the Events pages. If you have good photos of the choir, please send them along or bring to a rehearsal (high resolution best) and we'll post a collection on the web site.

The upcoming Summer Concert will be on 13th July 2019 at Holme Grange Wokingham. Please mark your diaries. Details and timings below..
