St Andrew’s Christmas Choir 2016

All singers are warmly invited to join the St Andrew's Christmas Choir. It is helpful if you have some previous choral singing experience and are either able to read music or learn quickly by ear. It is also important that you are able to attend a good number of rehearsals, as well as most of the services (it is not necessarily assumed that everyone will sing in everything).
