New Season – New Members

Tonight we welcomed for the first time twelve new members who were successful at last Saturday's audition day.

Northampton Bach Choir in Rehearsal

Our principal venue, St Matthew's Church, is the largest venue in the Town, but it nevertheless presents challenges with performance space, and although we minimise the size of our accompanying orchestras as much as possible, we are simply unable to accommodate more than 115 singers on stage at any one time; we therefore have to limit the choir to a membership of 130 (which allows for a small number of absences at each concert). For over a year we have been at maximum capacity, so we were delighted to be able to hold our audition day, and our twelve new members were selected from nearly thirty applicants. This brings the membership of the choir up to 126 – we have kept a small number of vacancies for tenors and basses (all of our thirty applicants were either sopranos or altos!), so that a good balance between parts can be achieved.

Some of our New Members

Pictured above are eight of our new members at this evening's rehearsal, as preparations continue for our Haydn at Christmas concert on Saturday 5 December.
