Rehearsal schedule for Easter concert 7 April 2018

Spires Chorus has no preferred day for rehearsals in order to allow regular members of other choirs to attend. Chorus members should attend at least seven of these (more if you are not a confident sight reader) and be available for the one on the day of the concert.

If this is problematic, please contact Kath Hardy, Chorus Manager.

Rehearsal venue:

King Henry VIII School MUSIC BLOCK

Parking is available in the school car park accessed from Spencer Road

Please note that there is an electronic gate on the car park operated by a code. For access arrangements and code details please contact Kath Hardy (Chorus Manager). Email link here.
