Birmingham Bach Choir is on the lookout for new talent from across Birmingham
Choir Chairman Jonathan Spencer said: “We’re looking for good voices within the tenor range. Maybe they haven’t sung in a choir for some time, are new to the area, or would like a new challenge? Perhaps they’ve sung with a big choral societies and would like to try out the more intimate chamber choir experience? We’d love to hear from anyone who is interested.”
Would-be tenors are invited to attend an open rehearsal of JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio on Wednesday 7 November 2012, from 7.15pm, in Edgbaston, Birmingham. Music will be provided. For more information and to book a place, please call Hilary on 01562 884821.
