We are looking for talented singers to join the Oriel Singers - particularly tenors and basses.

Why join the Oriel Singers?

We are one of Gloucestershire's leading choirs, performing a wide range of music from Elizabethan madrigals to newly commissioned sacred works. Occasionally we perform larger scale works, such as Bernstein's Chichester Psalms or Jonathan Dove’s For An Unknown Soldier.

We perform across Gloucestershire and the surrounding area, and regularly go on tours across the UK and abroad - recent tours include Winchester Cathedral and Perugia (Italy). As well as performing to a high standard, we socialise regularly, both with post-rehearsal pub trips and other social events.

We don't note-bash in our rehearsals, and enjoy performing interesting and challenging new works as well as traditional favourites.

Who are we looking for?

We're looking for good singers: being able to read music is a must, and moderate sight-singing abilities are beneficial.

We currently have a waiting list for Sopranos and Altos, but are actively looking for a new Tenor and Bass.

If you are interested...

Please contact us using our online form and then we can chat about what choir membership involves.

You can still sing with us occasionally even if you cannot commit

We run a Come and Sing day each year - unless there is a global pandemic of course. Our next one will be in January 2022. More details will be posted here in Autumn 2021.
