The Chorus is always interested in applications from good singers and at the
moment we particularly welcome applications from Tenors and Basses. You must be be prepared to commit to rehearsals on a Tuesday evening and to singing in our concerts.
Many of our members live in the Poole/Bournemouth/Christchurch conurbation but we also have singers travel in from Dorchester and beyond to the west, the New Forest and Southampton to the east and from the north, Blandford, Warminster and Salisbury etc. We rehearse - and perform many of our concerts - at Lighthouse, Poole which is opposite Poole bus station and very near to the train station.Use the links in the menu bar on the left to find out more.
