Barry Community Choir - FAQ

Do I need to read music?

No – the conductor has various methods of teaching people to sing.

Do I need to have sung in a Choir before?


Will I have to audition? Will I ever have to sing on my own?

Definitely not!

How big is the Choir?

Currently, we have 30 on our books which includes our Conductor and Accompanist.

Will my age be a barrier?

Certainly not! We welcome all ages.

How do I know if my voice is high, low or just in between?

You probably don’t, unless you have sung in a Choir before. So just come along and see if your voice is anything like the person you are sitting next to. You can change at any time.

Is it just a ladies’ Choir?

No, we currently have 8 men – but could do with some more!

What sort of things do you sing?

We have a varied repertoire from sacred to pop! From Ave Verum to California Dreamin’!

Where do you perform?

All over the place! Our big concerts are currently in Crossway Methodist Church in Barry and this year we will be singing in a Nursing Home, at a Craft Fair, in the Rhondda and in St Cadoc’s Church, Barry. We have already sung in the 3-Choirs Concert in Barry, which we hope will become an annual event. We are always looking for new avenues to perform.

Do you have any social events?

Yes – on the first Wednesday of every month we have a Coffee Evening and Raffle as well as a rehearsal. We are holding a Workshop which is open to all on 23rd May, a Summer Dinner is on the cards as well as a Summer Concert and a Quiz Night in conjunction with Crossway Church is set to become an annual event – in November. We usually have a Christmas/New Year Dinner as well.

How much will it cost?

The fees are £150 for a year’s subscription which can be paid in a lump sum, or through instalments.
