Second Rehearsal on Wednesday

Many thanks to all that attended our first rehearsal of term last Wednesday – it has been quite a while since Regent House looked so packed!

Our second rehearsal will take place from 7pm this Wednesday 3rd October in Regent House. If you didnt manage to join Choral yet this term, don’t fret as you may sign up at Wednesday’s rehearsal. We look forward to seeing you there as we continue our preparations for the Mozart C Minor / Haydn Nelson Mass concert in November.

First Rehearsal

It has been an extremely busy Freshers’ Week for Choral this year. After five days of signing up new members, performing a concert in the Chapel, and holding a wine reception, it is now time to look ahead to the coming term.

Choral’s activities for the 2012-13 academic year will begin in earnest with our first rehearsal this coming Wednesday, 26th September at 6.30 pm in Regent House (which is above Front Arch, enter college through the front gate, take the door on the right under the arch and follow the stairs up to the top floor). As many new members will be signing up, and scores will need to be distributed, please arrive on time so that the actual rehearsal can begin promptly.


The programme for our upcoming concert (to take place in the Public Theatre at the end of November) will consist of Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor and Haydn’s Nelson Mass.

If you didn’t get a chance to sign up with Choral during Freshers’ Week, be sure to come along and join on Wednesday evening (no audition required for prospective members with musical experience).

After rehearsal, we will be heading to Mc Turcaills on Townsend Street for food and socialising!
