About Us

WHO CAN JOIN FIRECHOIR?

FireChoir is open to everyone. All cultures, nationalities, religious or non-religious persuasions are welcome! FireChoir is a professional and exciting musical experience. We do not exclude anyone because of beliefs, race or experience. Everyone is welcome to visit a rehearsal before committing to join.

  • Age limit: We accept members from 15 years old and up. We will consider requests to allow younger members (13-14 years old) on an individual basis.
  • Auditions: We do not audition people to select the 'best' voices as some choirs do. We audition people for voice placement purposes (soprano, alto, tenor & bass), to insure everyone can sing on pitch/carry a tune, and to evaluate individual progress of members so they will have a better chance at achieving their potential.
  • Experience: Previous choir experience or the ability to read music is NOT REQUIRED.

​Register online now to be part of the 2017 Fall concert season. ​Get a 10€ discount if you register before 31 August.
