Who can Join?
Membership of the Parliament Choir is open to all who work in the Palace of Westminster – MPs, Peers and members of staff in either House. There are no auditions for the choir.
Rehearsals are on Monday evenings 6.15-8.15, in St Mary Undercroft (off Westminster Hall) while Parliament is in session.
In addition to regular rehearsals, there is at least one study day before each concert. This is an intensive one-day rehearsal, usually on a Saturday from 10.00 - 4.00. It is not only a good learning experience but is always thoroughly enjoyable.
We have always felt that it is important to be inclusive and the Parliament Choir is therefore an egalitarian organisation within the hierarchical institution of Parliament. Choral singing is not only an excellent way to make music with others but is often the only way an amateur can work on, and perform, wonderful music. Singing with the Parliament Choir is highly rewarding.
The choir is keen to expand and welcomes new members. If you enjoy singing and you meet the criteria above and would like to join us please contact the Choir Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply come along on a Monday evening.
