Stafford Singers has a membership of about 50, and has a varied repertoire including favourite pop songs, traditional songs of the British Isles, opera and show excerpts, traditional American spirituals, and classical European works. African and New Zealand items have even been added recently. You will be very welcome to attend, especially if you are a Tenor or Bass.



We meet for rehearsals every Monday evening 7.30pm to 9.30pm from September to June (except Bank Holidays) at
Berkswich Methodist Church,
Walton-on-the-Hill,
Stafford
ST17 0LH
(See map)

Each year we perform for numerous charities at various venues and join The Stafford Orchestra for a Christmas concert.

All members pay an annual subscription. A folder of music is provided, for which you will be responsible. This should be returned for updating each June at the end of our season. Later you will be encouraged to obtain one or two of the books from which parts of our repertoire are taken. The dress required for concerts is:
Gentlemen: Trousers, long sleeved shirt, shoes and socks, all black, and a green tie (available to buy from the choir).
Ladies: Trousers, round neck top, shoes and hosiery, all black, and a green jacket (also available to buy from the choir). Small, discreet jewellery may be worn if desired. Handbags, if brought, should be small and will be securely looked after during concerts.

A black folder is provided for concerts. You may also be provided with a stage box to stand on at concerts where there is no appropriate staging. You will be responsible for bringing it along to concerts when requested to do so. Most of our concerts are fairly local, in Stafford and surrounds.

An Annual General Meeting is held towards the end of the season and the elected committee meet as and when necessary.

Throughout the year we try to arrange social events and always end the season in June with a Social Evening. Any ideas or input for events are most welcome.
