City Chorus is a friendly, hard working choir, open to all with no audition. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings in the city and perform several times a year in beautiful venues.

 

Our musical director is Paul Ayres and our accompanist (piano and organ) is Philip Shannon. Our concerts feature top professional musicians.

 

Please subscribe to our occasional newsletter.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Resources for singers

Singing practise:

 

simple and effective advice for choir singers (voice teacher)

 

very good short instruction videos from operatic tenor Christopher Jacklin

 

 

Ear training:

 

Hear music like Paul and Philip do (well, after a lot of practise) with this

functional ear trainer for PC (android phone or iphone).

It teaches how notes sound in harmonic context, in relation to the tonic.

 

Intonation:

 

Interesting article on why a capella pieces are hard to sing in tune.

 

 

Converting Midi files:

 

Though imacs, ipads, iphones etc can't read midi files directly, you can convert

them online. Here's one site:

[choose "don't add to public database", and I suggest turning off Chorus

and Reverb]
