General Information for ALL VENUES
When you arrive, you will be greeted by a member of The People’s Show Choir team, who will be wearing a clearly labelled t-shirt. They will ensure that you have registered for the ‘Free Taster’ session, give you your sheet music for the session and aid you in the answering of any questions you may have.
Rehearsals run for two hours; 70 minutes rehearsal, followed by a 20-minute break (where we provide tea, coffee and best of all, biscuits!), and then a final 30 minute rehearsal.
We start every rehearsal with a group warm up, so to ensure you get the best out of this, it’s important to make sure that you arrive at rehearsals on time.
We pride ourselves on establishing a diverse array of repertoire for our choirs, as well as making every rehearsal inclusive. Whether you’ve been singing for years or this is your first time in a choir, fear not! We will make sure that you are comfortable and happy in everything that we are doing.
You will not be asked to audition to join the choir and you do not need to be able to read sheet music! Please do not be alarmed if we hand you a music score and you have no experience – we will help you with this – we just like to make sure that everyone is reading from the same page, literally!
We welcome members ages 9 and up. Ages 9-13 will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for all rehearsals, and ages 14-18 will be able to attend without supervision after their first rehearsal, where we will ask for written consent. Please see our T&C’s for further details.
Should you there be an emergency on the day, if you’re lost, or if you generally need advice or help, please do call us and let us know: 07786 629531.
We rehearse on a weekly basis and a thorough outline of our term dates can be found on the website. If, in the very rare event that we have to cancel a rehearsal on a ‘last-minute’ or emergency basis, we will endeavor to give you as much notice as we possibly can.
Every week you will receive an email from us, with details of anything you need to know about the upcoming rehearsal. Should we not have any urgent information to send out, the email will act as a reminder. Please make sure you do read these emails, as they are our primary source of contact with you.
When you have signed up as a paying member, you will gain access to our Member’s Portal. Here, you will be able to use a variety of resources, designed by us to specifically aid you in your vocal journey with The People’s Show Choir. We will provide you videos containing backing tracks, lyrics, individual parts/sectionals, movement routines and much more!
From September 2019 we will be running a TPSC Ambassador Program, where you can benefit from bringing new members to the choir. If this is something that you are interested in, you will be able to access further information once you have signed up as a paying member.
