Join the Chorus

We do not audition chorus members – all are welcome and no previous experience of performing opera is needed. Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings from 7-10pm in the Parish Hall at Holy Trinity Church, Walton Street, Aylesbury, HP21 7QX. We produce one fully staged opera production per year (with orchestra), one opera concert performance (with orchestra), and a handful of ad hoc concerts. 


If you would like to join, please contact Philip Hayes at aylesburyopera@gmail.com for further info. 


Upcoming performances are as follows:


Aylesbury Waterside Festival - Saturday 12th September 2020

Concert in Long Crendon - Saturday 3rd October 2020
