    North8 welcome applications for the permanent role of TENOR and for deputy singers of all voice types. We are a young, experienced vocal octet based in Leeds. Formed in 2018 by professional, postgraduate and undergraduate singers, our aim is to create a space where we can develop our ensemble choral skills by exploring a broad range of choral repertoire and performing together in a semi-professional capacity, with voices either one or two to a part. Our singers attend fun, challenging monthly rehearsals and perform our concerts simply because it is our passion to sing together. However there are ever-growing opportunities for our singers to perform at additional paid events, such as weddings (ranging from £70-£120 per musician, depending on event).
    A number of our singers have experience in choral conducting, so we often work collaboratively to suggest new repertoire to sing. North8 are regularly asked to provide vocal leaders to run singing workshops throughout the year; this work is advertised internally to our North8 singers and ranges from £70-£100 per rehearsal/workshop. As such, singers with an interest in choral leadership would have an advantage during the audition process. There is also the opportunity to arrange or compose music for the ensemble, if you are interested in doing so. If you are keen to develop as an ensemble singer and would like to meet others from in and around Leeds with a similar passion, we would love to hear from you! Details of all auditions here:

    NB: The website says deadline is next week but we are constantly recruiting deputy singers at the moment so would love to hear from anyone in the next 6 months

    Schola Anselmi - St. Anselm and St. Caecilia Church, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, WC2A 3JA The church of St. Anselm and St. Caecilia is located just minutes away from Holborn station (Central & Piccadilly Lines) very close to Lincoln’s Inn Fields. St. Anselm and St. Caecilia has had a strong musical tradition for many years; indeed Thomas Arne was the Director of Music at the Sardinian Chapel, which preceded the current building. We have a thriving junior choir, but are seeking new members from excellent amateur choirs in the London area, or people who are willing to travel to London. 

    I am looking for new choir members (all voice parts, but particularly sopranos and altos!) who would be interested in joining the 'Schola Anselmi'  from January 2020 - the adult choir who sing for the Latin Mass at 12pm. Our repertoire is ambitious; we sing a different acapella mass setting each week, e.g. Byrd/Palestrina, Victoria etc). The choir is mostly one or two per part - and so there will likely be scope for solo(s) - either during a mass setting or motet. The main aim is that we have as much fun as possible, exploring as wide a range of acapella mass settings as possible. The commitment is fairly light: rehearsal from 11am on Sunday(s), with mass finished shortly after 1pm. The only pre-requisite is excellent sight-reading; there is no requirement to be Catholic! 

    We are holding an 'open rehearsals' day on Sunday, 15th December when we will sing the Imgoen Holst 'Mass in A minor' before retreating to the Seven Stars for a Christmas drink. Should you be interested in trying us out, please do not hesitate to email me: or via WhatsApp: 07793 451 473.
