Londinium welcomes applications and enquiries from experienced singers who are interested in joining a committed and friendly choir.
In addition to a regular season of four to five cental London concerts a year, the choir accepts a number of other engagements, both in and out of London. Londinium works on a project basis, with rehearsals usually on Tuesday evenings (7pm - 9.30pm) at St John's Waterloo, and occasional Saturdays at venues in the City or near Waterloo. Rehearsals for own-promotion concerts typically take place over a period of five weeks, and include two all-day (10.30am - 4.30pm) Saturday rehearsals.
Our singers are drawn from a 'pool', which gives the choir the flexibility to meet the requirements of each project, but it is kept to a size which gives members of the choir as many opportunities to sing as possible. Singers do not have to make themselves available on each occasion, but there is a strong emphasis on maintaining a core group who work together regularly and take part in most performances. There is a subscription payable for each concert, to cover music and contribute towards our rehearsal costs. This is capped at £50, and is reduced for students and in other cases.
Auditions are taken by the Musical Director; auditionees are asked to bring a piece which they would like to sing and will be accompanied. There is also a sight-reading test.
Please fill in the form on our Contact page, stating your voice part and providing details of your singing experience, to request an audition.
