Choir Administration

Attendance

Please do your best to attend every rehearsal, and record your attendance in the register. We do understand that life sometimes gets in the way, but it is important that you are fully prepared for each concert, so please be sure to practise even if you cannot come to a rehearsal. If you have not attended sufficient rehearsals, you may not be allowed to sing in the concert.

Concert Height

Please ensure your height in concert shoes is entered correctly on the rehearsal register, as this is used to provide seating plans with good sight lines for concerts.

Fees

WMC’s year starts in September. For the year 2019-2020 fees are £140 (£135 if paid by the second rehearsal); students under 25 pay £25 per year. If you join as a new member after our November concert, the fee is reduced to one half of the full fee.

Payment can be made directly to the choir account using the details supplied by the Treasurer, or by cheque made out to ‘Winchester Music Club’ handed to the Membership Secretary (or Treasurer).
