Although the choir works to a very high standard, there are no auditions. Instead, several times a year we hold 'open rehearsals', to which any and all are welcome to come along, join in and get a feel for the unique experience of choral singing.

Over the years, we've heard 'em all. Here are a few, with our responses:
|1. I've never sung in a choir.||Good! We prefer a 'blank canvas'|
|2. I'm afraid of auditions.||So are we - we don't have any!|
|3. I usually sing off key.||That's fine: we sing off sheet music.|
|4. I can't read music.||Neither can Sir Paul McCartney.|
|5. I have a terrible voice.||Don't worry, we can put you next to some loudmouths.|
|6. I have a hearing difficulty.||So did Beethoven.|
|7. I'm tone deaf.||As long as it's the right tone...|
|8. I don't have the time.||We can find you a watch.|
|9. I can't sing solo.||Relax: we always get professionals in for those.|
