Eclipse Choir Auditions Autumn Term 2015

Ready for a new musical challenge?

Come and sing with Eclipse Choir!

We’re arranging auditions now

We’re actively recruiting new members to join our Solar Group of Eclipse Choir, which rehearses in Wimbledon on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. You don’t need to read music to join, but we do use musical scores, and we’ll encourage you to learn as you go along. It’s very exciting to pick up a new skill as well as singing beautiful music!

“I really enjoyed the first term of the Eclipse Choir. It was challenging but it developed my understanding of how a choir works and improved the way I sang – which is exactly what I had hoped would happen. Looking forward to more!”

– Gilian Tilbrook

What will the audition be like?

You’ll find that the audition is very gentle and friendly, where you’ll be asked to sing in a private studio with Jim coaching you. We are auditioning people in groups of six, so you can arrange to audition with a friend if you wish. If we have demand we will add other slots to accommodate more singers.

A term’s membership is £156, which is payable either termly, or monthly by direct debit at £39 per month over 4 months. We are a choir with ambition and pride ourselves on exceeding expectations by investing in our singers above and beyond a weekly sing. We consider Membership to be excellent value for money and we are committed to bringing out the best in every one of our singers.

  a minimum of 13 two-hour evening rehearsals per term
  a level of coaching and performance that will exceed open entry choirs
  ‘extra-curricular’ events, for example a Saturday Workshop with leading experts in singing or performance
  your own scores and access to our Members’ website for resources and extra tuition
  a quality whole choir performance at the end of each term and opportunity to sing at other events as they arise
opportunities to sing in smaller ensembles and in events in the wider choral community
  the chance to be part of an adventure in choral singing!

Please let us know if you have any questions. We’d be happy to help you.


  1. Hi

    I would love to audition but cannot do tomorrow. Is there a chance to audition on a different date?

    • Hi Hannah,

      Thanks for your message. Yes, we have a few people who can’t make tomorrow, so I’m just sorting out with Jim another date. Would you be able to make a weekday evening (Tues / Weds / Fri)?
      Best wishes,
