Choral Rehearals - Every Week

Commencing Monday 29th April, 2019 RMU are providing the opportunity to sing chorally every week! Rehearsals will be held at RMU Choir Hall at 158 Denison Street at the new time of 6:30PM - 7:30PM. This is an opportunity for singers to improve and prepare their voices in preparation for the choir's presentation of Phantom of the Opera. This play is set in the Paris Opera House. The characters include the cast of the resident opera company, theatre technicians and the resident phantom of the title. The standard of signing will therefore be necessarily high. Singing together weekly should give us the chance to have the best choral sound and all are encourage to attend. If you love to sing chorally - this is the place for you.

Choral Performances: We will initially be preparing for a selection of choral pieces to be presented for Nita Whyte, our previous choir conductor. Date yet to be confirmed
