- Can both men and women join?
Yes, we are a mixed choir and sing in 4 parts - bass, tenor, alto and soprano.
- Can I try out the choir before I decide to join?
Yes, in fact your first night at the choir is exactly that. It lets you get a feel for the music, enjoy the atmosphere and get to know some of the other Elation Community Voice family before you decide if you want to join permanently.
- Do I have to audition?
No, all you need to do is come along and find out if it's your thing. You have no obligation to come back again and become a member but we find that most people enjoy themselves and choose to keep returning.

- Does the choir perform to the public?
Yes, we normally perform around 3 times as year- Spring, Summer and Christmas and local events such as Buckby feast. In 2015 we performed at a wedding.
- How many are there in the choir?
