PARKING
On a car park to the rear of the church, accessible via North Street, on-street parking around the town or Scotgate or North Street car parks.

SUBSCRIPTIONS
2018 subscription cost is £120 per annum, that equates to £40 per term, or around £3 per rehearsal taking into account the costs of a concert; it's fantastic value for the quality of teaching and direction we receive and for the varied performance opportunities we create for members, often in association with professional orchestral players. We have had to increase these slightly over the last three years to cover our costs, and to enable us to continue putting on concerts of a high standard.

Membership is free to students in full-time education and people in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance.

Forthcoming

Rehearsals for the Spring Term start on 8th January. Join us for the joint concert with Stamford Endowed Schools Stamford on Tuesday evenings, 7:15pm - 9:15pm. We will be preparing Bach's "St. John Passion" on 23rd March 2019, in the De Montfort Hall, Leicester. New singers are always welcome in the opening weeks of each term, so please do come along, if you're interested in singing with us. Please get in touch with us ahead of the new term for this particular term as arrangements are different to our usual schedule.

For this year's Malcolm Sargent concert (a triennial event we hold with Stamford Endowed Schools) we will perform Bach's dramatic, fast-paced and concise re-telling of the passion story. Period orchestral accompaniment will be provided by the Musical and Amicable Society, we have a line up of six exciting professional soloists with Nathan Vale taking the role of the Evangelist (narrator) and a chorus, representing various crowds and groups in the narrative, numbering over 200. In a first for this event, we will be performing in the fabulous surroundings of the De Montfort Hall in Leicester which will ensure a fabulous acoustic and visual experience for everyone involved, both performers and audience. It promises to be an amazing event, well worth the trip! Tickets via the De Montfort Hall Box Office.
