Hull Freedom Chorus

Hull Freedom Chorus is a massed singing project run by Arts Development. With a current membership of over 800 members, it supports the development of group singing.

Joining the Chorus gives you chances to opt into a variety of projects leading to performances in Hull at high profile events. You will work with a variety of choral leaders and artists of a very high calibre, many of whom work all over the country.

You can apply to join the Hull Freedom Chorus if you are 14 and over, however if you are 17 and under you will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

You don't need to have any experience, singing ability or be able to read music, you just need to enjoy singing.

You will be expected to learn songs and attend sufficient rehearsals to be able to perform the songs at events. You must attend all dress rehearsals and final performances.

You will be asked to give permission to be filmed and photographed as part of this project.

There are no fixed days of rehearsals, each project has its own practice schedule, and members opt into the projects that they find of interest.

Please register your interest in joining the choir below -
