New Singers

New singers are always welcome to come along to our monthly singing sessions. A few key points:
  • There is no need at all to contact us before you come along to sing with us, but please do if you have any questions. When you arrive, please make yourself known to the evening's leader.
  • You do not need to be able to read music (most of our singers don't).
  • There are no auditions.
  • You will not be expected to sing solo.
  • There is no formal membership of the SDFS, no regular fees or subscriptions, and no joining fee.
  • The first few times you come you will be able to borrow copies of the words to sing from, but eventually you will be expected to print your own copies from files downloaded from this website.
  • You may choose to come just to our regular singing sessions, or you may also want to join in with our public performances. Anyone can join in our public performances (sometimes there is a maximum limit, allocated on a first-come first-served basis) but there is never any pressure to do this.
  • Our regular singing sessions take place once a month in each of three locations (see below for details). You choose how many times a month you want to sing with us and which sessions you want to attend. Our Worthing sessions atract a large number of singers, with smaller groups at our other venues (no doubt because Worthing is more central and those who sing twice a month tend to go to Worthing and one of the others).
  • Before coming to any of our singing sessions, always consult the Diary panel in the left column of our web pages or the Diary Dates page to confirm the date and venue. Very occasionally there are changes to our regular arrangements.
  • We look forward to seeing you!
Please take a look around the rest of this website to find out more about us and what we get up to.
