London Docklands Singers
Open rehearsal


Saturday 14th September 2019
11am to 1:30pm

Free - booking required

London Docklands Singers are hosting our 'Open Rehearsal' this year with Handel's Messiah. We introduced this annual event to give interested singers a chance to try out the choir before committing to joining. If you have been looking for a choir to join, then please sign up to attend this event!

It is free to attend this open rehearsal - please register through eventbrite.

We will be rehearsing Handel's Messiah. Scores will be available to borrow on the day.

We are a friendly choir, based in the community, and perform three concerts a year, alongside many fundraising Christmas events. We have spaces available in all voice parts (Women: Soprano and Alto, Men: Tenor and Bass). Don't worry if you're not sure which voice part you are - sign up to one of the parts online now and we can discuss further at the rehearsal. There is no audition necessary to attend, (and we won't ask you to solo in front of anyone), just come along and join in with your voice group and see how you go. We advise that a basic ability to read music is necessary.

Closest transport: Island Gardens DLR

If you can read music, that would be helpful, but not entirely essential. You will learn to read music as you become more familiar with music scores during our rehearsals.

Joining procedure

We do not hold an audition to join the choir. You need to attend 4 to 6 rehearsals as a probation period. You may have a possible audition if thought necessary by the Musical Director before accepting an offer to join the choir.


The fees are: £120 from September to August, 2019 – 2020. (£60 for concessions)


There are 3 to 4 concerts per year and other smaller events.

Choir Days - Saturdays

These are all day rehearsals, with breaks, running from 11am – 5pm, scheduled on a Saturday spent preparing for one of LDS’s main performances, usually 3 weeks before a concert. Attendance on a Choir Day will be essential.
