Term dates and planned events for 2017-2018 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 2017 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 2016) 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 next summer concert will be on 8th July 2017 at St. Paul's Church Wokingham. Please mark your diaries. Details and timings below..
