Singing in a choir can be very beneficial for your mental health. Join today!

Rehearsal times

Jonah & the Wailers rehearsals run from 7-9 pm.
We rehearse the same repertoire on all 3 nights. Therefore you can go to more than one evening if you would like. Either to have an extra sing or to get more familiar with your part. We have the same terms as school terms.

Is there an audition process?

Jonah requires no audition, you just need to be able to sing in tune.

However, the first thing a new singer needs to do is a “Range Test”.  Ian Laurence (the director) needs to see what your highest note is. Also the lowest note. This is to ensure you are put in the correct section. Either, Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Bass.  As well as making sure you don’t have to sing a note that you can’t reach. 

If in the range test, you can’t pitch. Ian may recommend you get a singing teacher. Who can teach you how to pitch before joining the choir. This is quite rare!
