Current Notices


Normal rehearsals are between 7:30pm and 9:30pm on Mondays in St John’s Church Hall. There is usually a short break at about 8.30. Members should please arrive no later than 7.25pm and be ready to start singing at 7.30.  Any changes to the rehearsal schedule will be noted below.

Promptness, possession of a soft pencil (never use ink or high-lighters on hired music) and a minimum chatter during rehearsals is appreciated.

  • There are a variety of note learning aids available. “ChoraLine” is recommended for learning CDs or (cheaper) downloadable mp3 files. These can be purchased from ChoraLine; note a 10% discount is available for RTWCS members (insert the word TUNBRIDGE as the “discount code” on the “shopping basket” window). Alternatively, you can order by telephone on 07561 445897 – and say you are a member of the Royal Tunbridge Wells Choral Society. Streamed “midi” and other music files files of the more popular choral works can be downloaded free from “Cyberbass ” and “LearnChoralMusic.co.uk“. The latter site also has some useful tips on methods of playing “midi” files on computers which will vary depending on the user’s operating systems and applications.
