You don’t need to be a Pavarotti to be a Plainsman! Choral singing is more about blending in than standing out, so it’s not such a big step from singing in the shower to joining us. Much of our learning is done by ear, so you don’t even need to know how to read music. If you’re a man who can hold a simple tune and are willing to learn and grow with us, we’d love to have you.
Feel free to visit us at any rehearsal (see side bar for information). If you’d like to sing with us we’ll help you work out what part suits you best (Bass, Baritone, Lead or Tenor) and team you up with a buddy to help you get started. There’s no pressure to audition right away – we’ll give you plenty of support to learn songs and develop your voice, and when you’re ready we’ll encourage you to strut your stuff.
Visit a Rehearsal
If you’re looking for a singing group to join or to book, please drop in to audition us! We love to share our craft, and visitors are always welcome.
Rehearsals are often boisterous, fun affairs but we also work hard. Depending on when you visit we may be focussing on core techniques, learning songs, or polishing performance, so if we’re all hooting or humming weirdly please bear with us – something more musical will be along shortly.
We rehearse almost every Monday from 7:15pm until 9:45, at Brake Street Methodist Church, Church Corner. See map in side bar.
If you’d prefer to talk with someone before you come, please call Alan on 03 3376202 or 021 1427668 or Contact Us.
