The New Forest Training Choir was formed in January 2011. The choir provides the opportunity for children to develop their singing technique, and also offers the opportunity to be invited by Musical Director Alison Russell-Hayward to join the Main choir.

The Training choir rehearse weekly from 4.40-5pm on Wednesdays (term time only) in Christchurch.

We regularly hold open auditions. This may sound daunting. It isn’t. Any child wishing to sing with the Training choir is invited to a rehearsal. You are very welcome to stay and observe. Your child will join the rehearsal and be auditioned in a low key and informal way. This may take several rehearsals. The intention is to keep stress levels low so your child gives of his/her best.

Please visit the send message page if you would like to be advised of the next audition date.
