Q. What is your yearly timetable?

Q. Do I ever have to sing a solo?
Q. I have a small child – can I bring her/him sometimes?
A. Yes, if s/he is quiet, well-behaved, well (not sick) and you feel comfortable leaving as soon as s/he needs attention.
Q. Do you provide the notated music?
A. Yes, if it is in the public domain. And yes, if it has been purchased in sheet music form and there are multiple copies which you can borrow.
Photocopies of music which is not in the public domain are not permitted to be distributed due to copyright laws.
Lyrics are provided and much of the music we sing is in the public domain and available from sites such as Choralwiki.
Q. Why is there a predominance of women in community choirs?
A. Choral directors wonder this the world over. It is not a bad thing. Community choirs can sound quite nicely balanced with a larger ratio of women to men.
