Happiness is ...

We practise every Tuesday from 7–9pm at the Wesley Centre, 3 Henry St, Blenheim. Please arrive in good time so we are ready to begin at 7 o'clock.

If you can't make it to a practice, please email marlboroughsingers@gmail.com (or use the form below).

As a concert date approaches we may be called upon to have a couple of extra rehearsals, usually on a Thursday night. You will be notified of these changes in good time.

Members are encouraged to practise at home in between rehearsals. We will often provide useful internet links to the  music as a whole or to help you learn different parts.

Being able to read music is useful but not a prerequisite to joining us. If there is something you do not understand regarding the music, please don't hesitate to ask the director or another choir member for assistance, preferably during a break or after the rehearsal.


If you have special skills or talents that the choir may be able to draw on (as a soloist or instrumentalist, conductor etc) we would love to know about them. Don't be shy!
