'I can't sing; can I still become a member?'
ABSOLUTELY! Make a Noise CHoirs are open to everybody aged 16 and up! Regardless of ability. Our goal is to create a friendly and welcoming choir experience.
'No I need to audition?
Nope! No audition necessary, whatsoever.
'I can't read music; do I have to learn how to?'
Of course not. We provide members with the choice of sheet music OR a lyrics sheet that you're more than welcome to make your own markings on to help you follow the piece.
'Do I need to be able to dance?'
Not at all. Make a Noise isn't a 'show choir' it's a 'show tunes choir' so we don't have any choreography to learn at all; although if the music takes you, no one's stopping you having a boogie!
'What do I need to bring?'
Aside from a willingness to be part of an exciting team and a good sense of humour, maybe just a pencil, a folder and a bottle of water [or gin if preferable..!] All music and/or lyrics are provided and at venues where a bar is not available, refreshments are provided for you.
'Do I have to perform at gigs?'
Not if you don't want to! The gigs are a fun and exciting way of meeting other members of Make a Noise Choir that rehearse in a different venue to yours but there is never any pressure to attend these and if you just want to come to the weekly rehearsals and masterclasses then that's just fine.
