JOIN THE CHOIR
NCGC is open to anyone. We do not audition, and there’s no music-reading involved. The best time to join us is at the beginning of each new term, but new singers are welcome any time.
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.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Just show up! To ensure that we can keep in touch with our members and comply with GDPR, we ask everyone to complete a short membership form. If you'd like to do this in advance so we know you're coming, you can find it here.
Otherwise, just pick a rehearsal day from below and come on in.
NCGC have a choice of two rehearsal nights a week. Singers are welcome at either, or can come to both for no extra cost. Our rehearsal days/locations are as follows:
Tuesday nights, 7:30-9pm
The Sanctuary (formerly St Alban’s Church)
Wednesday nights, 7:30-9pm
The Mousehold Hub
22 Mousehold Avenue
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Rehearsals are usually* £8 a session on a pay-as-you-go basis, or £5 for those on concession. Rehearsals can also be paid for in blocks for those who wish to.
*We do not want financial constraints to be a barrier for singers who wish to join us. If finances are an issue, please consider volunteering with us, as our volunteers come at our concession rate. We are also able to offer a concessionary rate of £5 per person to anyone living in the NR3 postcode who joins us on a Wednesday thanks to the generosity of our Wednesday hosts, the Mousehold Hub. If you would like to apply for a concessionary rate but are unable to volunteer with us, please contact Megan at , and she will be happy to discuss the options with you.
