News and Information

Newsletter items and reminders for Peterborough Young Singers, parents and carers.

Choir Fees

Our choir fees have been set at £35 per term for the 2015/16 calendar year.

This is great value and equates to less than £3 per Saturday rehearsal. To help with your budget we accept weekly or monthly instalments and the ability to pay by standing order.

Come and try us out and have some fun!!

Saturday Rehearsals

Our normal rehearsal times are:-

  • Junior Choir: 9:00 to 10:30
  • Senior Choir: 9:30 to 11:30

Singers are reminded to wear their informal tops on rehearsal days—it is quite necessary as an additional security measure. CSK Church, our brand new venue in Hampton, is a public building and our tops are quite distinctive. This is one of the package of measures which identify choir members and support their safety.

Committee Meetings

If you have any comment or points of discussion you would like to pass on to the committee, please contact the Secretary and they can be added to the agenda of the next meeting.

The committee encourages all parents to provide feedback throughout the year.

It is your choir, let's shape it's future together.

Uniforms

Order forms for the new uniform can be requested from the on duty committee members at rehearsals.
