Rehearsals are at Turner Sims on Monday evenings, 7.30pm to 9.30pm, with a short break at about 8.30pm.
The combined forces of Southampton Philharmonic Choir and the SU Philharmonic Choir numbers around 185 singers, thanks to several particularly successful seasons of recruitment in the student choir! We're a friendly and welcoming choir, and we currently have spaces for a handful of new tenors and basses. For the moment we have suspended recruitment for sopranos and altos, but anyone wishing to join is still welcome to contact the registrar, Sue, to provide their details for future possible recruitment.
Membership fees are one of our main sources of income, helping to pay for the promotion of concerts and the professional players and soloists we use. Despite this, our subs are less than the fees for many adult education classes. Full subscription, £121.00; new members, £60.50 for their first year; members aged under 25 years at the start of the season, £25.00. (Students at Southampton University should join the SU Philharmonic Choir, who rehearse and perform with the SPC.) To discuss joining (and/or in case of financial hardship) please contact Sue Stephenson, Registrar (07769738052).
