Temple Speech Rooms, Rugby School
Barby Road, Rugby, CV22 5DA
Come and join us for our third Showcase to be held in the Midlands, taking place at a new venue for 2018 – the Temple Speech Rooms, Rugby School. It’s a wonderful opportunity for community choirs to come together, network with like-minded groups and celebrate their love of singing!
Non-auditioned choirs from all over the UK are invited to take part in our second Showcase to be scheduled for the first half of 2018. Provisional timings for the day: 10.00am to 5.00pm (to be confirmed).
Each participating choir will have a 10-minute slot during the day to perform their chosen programme to all other choirs present; they’ll also receive friendly, constructive advice on how to enhance their performance from an expert panel of adjudicators, pick up repertoire and performance ideas, join in a massed sing and generally have fun networking with like-minded people.
The cost for each participant is £15 for the whole day, including refreshments (lunch not included), with a £50 non-returnable deposit payable on booking a place for your choir. This deposit can be settled by invoice, or you can choose to pay via our online shop, where the item can be found in our Other Events category.
