Voicebeat meets on Monday evenings from 7–9pm (please arrive several minutes before, in order to start singing at 7pm). As of 2016 we meet at the Scottish Dance Teachers' Alliance in Kelvinbridge at 101 Park Rd, Glasgow G4 9JE, not far from Kelvinbridge underground station, between Eldon St and Woodlands Rd.
The current term ended on 24 June 2019. We'll take the month of July off, and have optional summer rehearsals during August for those who just can't go without their singing fix, before starting the new singing year in September. We don't normally observe bank holidays. Most years we organise a residential singing weekend somewhere outside the city.
There's no audition or entry requirement to join Voicebeat. You don't need to read music, as we learn by ear. Whatever your background and experience, you are very welcome to come along to any rehearsal to enjoy the fun of singing with other people. You don't have to join at the start of term, you can come along at any time. After the rehearsal, we go to the pub to rehydrate, discuss plans and socialise, so please join us if you can.
To join Voicebeat costs just £2 per term. Your first rehearsal is free; thereafter, a contribution of £5 per rehearsal towards costs (room hire, refreshments, tuition etc) is requested from those who can afford it. Refugees and asylum-seekers pay nothing. It helps us if you pay termly in advance, and you get a discounted rate.
Voicebeat is not a drop-in session. We really appreciate a dedicated attitude, reliable attendance and punctual arrival, though obviously we know people have other things in life that can get in the way. If you do decide it's for you, please commit and give it your very best.
