Please note that the following page contains details of how NCGC operates in 'normal' times! We are working towards reopening choir from Tuesday 18th May, at different times and locations to normal. For details of how choir will operate from 18th May until the lockdown fully lifts, please see here.
WHERE AND WHEN DO YOU REHEARSE?
We have two rehearsal days, Tuesday and Wednesday nights in term time, 7:30-9pm. The rehearsal is the same on both evenings, and singers may choose which rehearsal to attend, or come to both rehearsals at no extra cost. Our locations are as follows:
Tuesday nights, 7:30-9pm
St Alban’s Church
Grove Walk, Norwich,
Wednesday nights, 7:30-9pm
The Mousehold Hub
22 Mousehold Avenue
DO YOU AUDITION?
No. Anyone is welcome, regardless of their level of experience.
DO YOU WORK FROM MUSICAL SCORE?
No. We provide our singers with lyrics, but all our music is learned by ear. We do run Kodaly classes for those who would like to learn to read music from score. Please see our 'Online Kodaly Music' page for more information.
DO I HAVE TO BE RELIGIOUS TO JOIN?
No. We are a Christian organisation and we love chatting about faith over hot chocolate if people have questions, but we will not proselytise and we do not put any conditions on our singers regarding faith or anything else. We have singers of different faiths and no faith - everyone’s welcome.
DO YOU HAVE ANY AGE RESTRICTIONS?
We are aimed at adults (over 18) of all ages. Children are welcome to join us, but we request that anyone under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Sessions normally cost £8 on a pay-as-you-go basis and £5 for anyone who chooses to come on concession. We offer concession memberships to anyone who volunteers their time with us. Please email us with any questions - email@example.com
CAN I PAY FOR A BLOCK OF REHEARSALS IN ONE GO RATHER THAN PAY-AS-I-GO?
Yes, you can. Singers can pay for a whole term at a time (or for the remainder of a term when part-way through) if they wish. Sessions paid for in advance cannot be refunded, but they may be used any time within a year of the purchase date.
HOW DO I APPLY TO VOLUNTEER WITH YOU?
We’d love to hear from anyone interested in volunteering with us. Check out our ‘join in’ page for further details of volunteering opportunities, come and chat to us at during a rehearsal session or drop us an email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW DO I APPLY TO BE ON TEAM?
Applying to be on team is a different to volunteering with us, with more required in terms of time and commitment. Core team are the brains behind NCGC, and we regularly meet together to pray, plan and hang out together. We don't require our core team to be musical geniuses, just in love with what NCGC is about. If you’d like to apply to be on team, we’d really love to hear from you. Please email us for some further information.
DO YOU OFFER INDIVIDUAL SINGING LESSONS?
No, but we now offer group music lessons. See our 'Online Kodaly Music' page for more information.
