DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE AUDITION!​!

 

Like many professional musicians, Harry is involved with other choirs, but Thames Philharmonic is the only one that auditions its members.

The vocal assessment lasts about 10 minutes, and involves a warm-up, exercises to explore the range and pitch of your voice to see how it fits in with the Choir, and a short prepared piece of your own choice.

Sight reading isn’t essential.
