Spring 2024 rehearsal schedule

What we’re singing, when and where, and how to join us.

Term dates

We meet to practise every Tuesday from 9 January through to Tuesday 12 March, 7.30pm – 9.30pm, except for half term, which falls on 13 February.
Address: William Ellis School, Highgate Road, London NW5 1RN

The music

We’ll loan you a copy of the score for the term, but if you want to get your own to keep, we’re using the New Novello Edition of Handel’s Messiah – Parts 2 & 3. It helps if you have the same edition so all the page references, words and even notes are all the same for everyone.

Keeping up to speed

Join us

If you’ve missed the first week, fret not, there’s still time to join us over the first few weeks. If this is your first time singing with us or you’d just like to join our mailing list, send us some contact details so we can keep in touch.
