Come along to a couple of rehearsals to see how you feel
Have a vocal assessment with Harry Bradford and James Orford; they will let you know straight away how you got on
Subscription: £85 per term or £227 a year, excluding residencies. FREE for full-time students.
Like many professional musicians, Harry is involved with other choirs, but Thames Philharmonic is the only one which asks members to have a formal vocal assessment.
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.
