Entry to All Saints Parish Choir is by audition. The director of music, Jonathan Wikeley, is always keen to hear from interested singers at any time of year and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Singers will be asked to perform a piece they know well (ideally bringing along an extra score for the accompanist), and sightread a few extracts from the choral repertoire. The director of music is always happy to chat informally about any aspects of the choir beforehand.
Full list of services (1.4mb)
The normal weekly commitments are as follows:

Within this schedule, there are various breaks. Congregational Evensong is held on the third Sunday of each month. There is one men’s voice and one women’s voice Sunday each term, and on occasions the choral scholars will sing services on their own.
