Come and Join Us

We always welcome new members. If you would like

to join us simply come along to one of our rehearsals.

We do not hold auditions; our only requirements are

that you should be able to sing, hold a note, attend regular rehearsals and practise in your own time. Annual subscriptions do apply and are moderate. If you have any questions, please contact us on

Please note that if you use a web-based email system you will need to copy the email address into your own email package rather than click on the link.


Rehearsals are on Tuesdays mainly during term time. They start promptly at 7.30pm and finish at 9.30 pm. There is a break for chat and refreshments. Our rehearsal venue is Market Harborough Methodist Church, Northampton Road, Market Harborough LE16 9HE.


The subscription is currently £85 per year (£75 per year for unwaged). This is paid during the Autumn Term before the first concert but can be paid in instalments. Members joining part way through the year pay on a pro rata basis. Subscriptions are free for those in full time education.


Prospective members are invited to ‘try before you buy’. Excluding deposits for Music Hire and the loan of a Concert Folder, the annual subscription covers all costs. Members are expected to provide their own concert dress. The majority of members use music hired by the Society, although some choose to buy their own copies.


Rehearsals start at 7.30 p.m. on Tuesdays at the

Methodist Church, Northampton Road, Market

Harborough. Please be in your seat with your music

ready to start singing by 7.30 pm.

If the rehearsal is elsewhere you will be notified.

Note that the final rehearsal on the afternoon of the

performance is always at the performance venue.

The Sign-in Register, which can be found at the back of the hall, must be signed at the beginning of each rehearsal.


You should also indicate your attendance for the concert as soon as possible as we need the information for seating and the programme.


Rehearsal Schedule

At the first rehearsal for each Concert please arrive at 7.15 pm to collect your music and enable a prompt start at 7.30 pm


A Diary is available to download which gives dates of rehearsals, performances, committee meeting dates and social events planned.
