Everything you ever wanted to know
Who can join?
Anyone aged 7 plus can join in.
My child would like to take part but I don't, is that ok?
This is fine, however, we do request that members younger than 14 are accompanied by a parent or carer during rehearsals unless other wise agreed with The Glee Bah Gum Committee.
Is there a cost?
We do have a suggested donation of £2.00 for over 18's and £1.00 for under 18's per rehearsal to help with the running costs of the choir such as photocopying of lyrics and the purchase of backing tracks.
Where do you rehearse?
All rehearsals are held on a Monday evening at The Church on the corner, check our Getting involved section for directions.
You rehearse in a church, are you a Christian Choir?
No, Glee Bah Gum is a nondenominational Glee Club, with members form a variety of different backgrounds. However we would like to extend our thanks to Church on the Corner for kindly providing us with a rehearsals space.
What kind of music do you sing?
Pretty much anything, choir members make suggestions and our musical director fits these into planned performances and rehearsals or sometimes just for fun. All songs are family friendly and we do ensure we change any potentially offensive lyrics.
Do you dance as well as sing?
We do dance to some of our songs but all choreography is set with the abilities of all members in mind. If you have trained for years or feel like you have 2 left feet there will be a version for you.
Do I have to audition?
No, if you would like to take part just come along to any rehearsal or contact us for more details.
Is there an opportunity to sing solos?
Absolutely! All members are encouraged to have a go at a solo if they wish, just let the musical director know and we will do our best to fit it into our next performance.
Do you have a pianist?
At the moment, Glee Bah Gum rehearse and perform to pre- recorded backing tracks, however if you play an instrument there is opportunity to play with the group if you wish.
If we missed anything out get in touch via our contacts page and we will be happy to help
