Open Rehearsals

EFC is an auditioning choir, but you can join us – without the pressure of an audition – at an Open Rehearsal to get an idea of how we work.

We are holding our next Open Rehearsal on Wednesday 12 June 2019 when we shall be preparing for our Vivaldi and Mozart concert in July.

We are happy to be flexible about a visit date so, if you are not able to attend an Open Rehearsal, it is possible for us to arrange a visit to an ordinary rehearsal. The autumn term Open Rehearsal will be on Wednesday 9 October 2019.

At our Open Rehearsals the emphasis is on making the session enjoyable and accessible for our visitors, and the rehearsals are directed by EFC’s inspirational conductor, Nigel Perrin. There will be no charge for visitors to attend this rehearsal, which will be held at the Maynard School, and places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. If you would like to experience the fun, camaraderie and sense of achievement which are brought by singing a wide range of music, then you can find out more and book yourself a place at an Open Rehearsal (or an alternative date) by telephone (01395 275399) or by emailing our This email address is being protected from spambots.

What is the special recruitment offer for 2019-2020?

If you attend a rehearsal in the summer term 2019, you will receive:
* a voucher for a free concert programme at the splendid Vivaldi/Mozart concert
* a ticket for the informal after-concert refreshments with the choir and other performers.
You will also be ‘fast-tracked’ for an EFC audition and, if successful, you will of course be eligible for EFC membership.
