We're thrilled that you've decided to learn more about becoming a member
At Bristol GMC we are serious about having fun whilst attaining excellent performance standards - so we ask that you have:
a pleasant singing voice but don’t worry, no previous is experience needed.
a good sense of pitch and rhythm & the ability to blend well with other voices – no divas allowed!
the ability to learn music and lyrics and take musical direction – we’ll provide sheet music, sound files and plenty of tips of tricks.
We’ll also ask you:
to work on learning outside of rehearsals so we can perform from memory and rock the stage.
to bring a friendly & open outlook to rehearsal, a sense of cooperation and a willingness to work to high musical standards.
pay the monthly membership fees.
Attendance at a 5 minute voice assessment is a pre-requisite for joining Bristol GMC as a singing member. The voice assessment tells us which section you may be most suitable for (Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Baritone or Bass).
We completely understand that the idea of attending an assessment is potentially nerve-wracking, but hopefully we can make it as painless as possible, and maybe even fun!
(Face to face rehearsals are held in Bedminster/central Bristol. We will let you know details of the venue via email).
Our taster sessions generally comprise a short warm-up after which the choir will perform a few of the songs we've recently been working on. Following this "mini-performance" we'll start learning a new song together.
After having attended a taster session, your next couple of sessions will be FREE of charge (remaining rehearsals until next payment month) - just so you can get a feel for whether this is for you.
