A bit of information on the choir

Chanctonbury Chorus is a well established group of about 50 singers of all ages who enjoy getting together weekly to rehearse a big choral masterpiece. We meet for rehearsals at 7.45 pm on Wednesday evenings, during term time, in the Drama Rood of the Lower School, Church Street, Steyning We perform with our orchestra 2 or 3 times a year – often this is in the Steyning Parish Church but we also sing in Lancing College Chapel and number of other local venues.

The great thing is that to sing with the Chorus, you do not need current musical experience as there is no audition and members are coached as we go along. Nevertheless, the results are superb and a great part of Sussex musical life.

Our annual subcription, due in October, is £100.00 which, if easier, can be paid in two instalments; £20.00 of the subscribtion fee is for tuition but the rest can be Gift Aided. No additional charge is made for music hire but members will be expected to be responsible for the various small administrative-type jobs associated with running a amateur choirs.
