Chandos Singers’ Rehearsals
Rehearsals take place during term-time on Fridays at the Magdalen Chapel, Holloway, Bath, from 7.30 to 9.30. It is possible that a few rehearsals take place on Thursdays (when the Chapel is not available on the Friday, or when Chandos is performing on the next Saturday).
The autumn term in 2017 starts on Friday 8th September.
Each term, Chandos hold a Saturday workshop, usually held a month before a concert. Workshops usually start at 1.30 and end at 5.30 (with a cake-break in the middle). It is hoped that all members who are to sing in the forthcoming concert will attend these workshops. Soloists might attend as well, sometimes having a session at 12.30 (i.e. before the choir arrives).
