Would you like to join The Purcell Singers? Vacancies arise from time to time and membership will offer you the opportunity to take part in concerts in venues across London, make high-profile recordings and become part of a friendly and talented group of musicians.

2019 Auditions

We are delighted to announce a new round of auditions, which will be held on Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 September, at the 1901 Arts Club (near Waterloo Station).

This is your opportunity to join a top-rate ensemble who perform in venues across London, the UK and internationally; take part in classical recordings, soundtracks and movie trailers.

We rehearse in a number of churches, usually within the City of London. We do not meet every week, but instead book a short series of rehearsals in the weeks preceding a concert - usually four to six rehearsals, pending the repertoire.

We are welcoming auditions for all voice parts. Please note that this choir performs at a very high standard, with limited rehearsal. We therefore expect all singers to be good sight readers, and be willing to look at music between rehearsals.

If you think this describes you, please contact administrator Eleanor Dale today to book your audition, and become part of our friendly and talented group of musicians.

Details

Auditions may last up to 15 minutes, and singers will need to prepare a piece no more than 5 minutes long which shows off their voice well. We will also ask singers to sight-read a short piece, and possibly sing through some scales.

The auditions will take place on Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 September, between 1830 and 2130, at the 1901 Arts Club, Exton Street SE1 8UE.
