Days, dates and times

Seasons and sessions

We run two seasons every year:

  • Spring (18 sessions, February to June, performances in June and July)

  • Autumn (12 sessions, September to November, performances in late November and December)

In the Spring season, there are 18 standard weekly sessions, and in the Autumn season, there are 12. We don't take a break for half-term, but we do break for two weeks over Easter. 

Times

All standard in-person sessions run from 7pm to 9pm. You are welcome and encouraged to arrive any time from 6:30pm, so you have chance to socialise with other singers before the session starts.

We don't take a break in the middle of the session (a decision taken based on singer feedback).

Days

We run in-person sessions on three nights each week:

  • Nottingham: Tuesdays

  • Lincoln: Wednesdays

  • Sheffield: Thursdays

We also run Zoom sessions on Monday evenings. These cover the same material as the in-person sessions from the previous week, and are recorded so they can be watched back afterwards instead/as well. 

The Monday Zoom sessions are 6:45pm to 8pm for sopranos and tenors, and 8:15pm to 9:30pm for altos and basses.

Dates
