Chorus of Dissent sing for their supper at St Matthias Patronal Fesival
12 May 2019
St Matthias Church
We are a friendly, sociable, non-audition, project-based choir that welcomes singers from the local area and beyond.
Our sellout concerts feature innovative and eclectic programming. We think we are probably the only choir ever to perform Fauré and Freddie Mercury, and Bach and Elbow in the same concert. We aim to present the best music in our own inimitable and inclusive Dissenting style.
You will need to be an experienced singer, able to read music and sing in tune in order to manage the delightfully short rehearsal schedule that precedes our delightfully short concerts. Our singers also work hard in between rehearsals to learn their parts at home.
One of the cornerstones of our success is our collaboration with our very own orchestra of local professional musicians, The Elastic Band, which expands and contracts as the music dictates.
If you’d like to rise to the challenge of joining our exciting choir, email Ruth on firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Chorus of Dissent is exciting, edgy, ambitious, and whatever the opposite of treading water is (a turbo-charged speedboat).”
John Sloboda, musician and activist
Chorus of Dissent does it differently
It is our mission to break down the mystique and snobbery that exist around classical music, to perform good music of all kinds to the very highest standard, and to do so without one ounce of dumbing down.
If you’d like to join us, link through to our contact page and send details of your experience and which part you sing, and we’ll get straight back to you.
