Londinium welcomes applications and enquiries from experienced singers who are interested in joining a committed and friendly choir.
We present around four to five concerts each year in the City of London, currently and until July 2018 at St Sepulchre's, in addition to other engagements 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.
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 small subscription payable for each concert, to cover music and contribute towards rehearsal costs.
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 contact form, stating your voice part and providing details of your singing experience, to request an audition.
