Women's Choir looking for new members, Zurich

Hi all,

My name is Lorraine, and I'm a choir director running a women's choir here in Zurich. We are reforming for our fall season and will be performing Britten's Ceremony of Carols as well as some popular Christmas carols at our winter concert. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0ncaBUE2HM

It's an international choir, rehearsals are held in English. We are a very inclusive group, so don't be afraid to reach out! It's also a great way to meet new people in town, particularly if you are new.

Those who have never sung in a choir before are asked to audition. For those choir members who want to improve their sight-singing and ear, group lessons are held 1/2 an hour before rehearsals.

All the best,
Lorraine

Aw shucks, I was looking for something exactly like this a couple of years ago but got scared off by the prospect of rehearsals in Swiss German. About to move to Basel now, so I'm too late! Do you know of anything similar in Basel, perchance?

Good luck with finding new members, would have loved to join!

A friend of mine runs a women's choir in Basel, but they definitely rehearse in german . . . I can ask him if he knows of any others and pm you if I find one.

For those of you interested in joining, please PM me your email address so I can add you to the mailing list.

Very excited for this season of singing!

That would be great, if you wouldn't mind German should be fine, just preferably not Swiss German. Thanks so much!
