The Royal Opera House, Thurrock is looking for new singers to join its ‘community chorus’.

If you have ever fancied yourself as a karaoke king, why not add your voice to the Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus?

It currently needs some lower register voices to add to its range. The Chorus meets weekly and sings a wide repertory of opera, popular classics and contemporary composers. Its regular session, on Monday, January 15, will be an opportunity for anyone interested in joining to meet members of the chorus and find out why they love to sing together and what can be expected from being part of this diverse and committed group.

The ROH Thurrock Community Chorus is open to everyone aged over eight, who lives, works, studies or volunteers in Thurrock.

Jeremy Haneman, the long-standing director of the chorus said: “Only open to new members once a year, this time, we are especially looking for men who love singing or who have always wanted to give it a try.

“We are passionate about introducing people to the magical world of opera and choral singing, so whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, all levels are welcome to join our thriving singing community.”

There is no charge for the taster sessions but registration is required. To register to attend, please email the Royal Opera House learning and participation team in Thurrock at [email protected], or, call 01708 891200.  Transport may be available to anyone who needs a lift to and from Palmers College.
