An Invitation to your choir members!
Perform with the world famous Hallé orchestra,
Thursday 27 June, 6pm, Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham

I’m writing to warmly invite all your choir members, their friends, family and anyone who loves singing to join our fantastic Drivetime Choir at the Royal Concert Hall on Thursday 27 June at 6pm to sing with the Hallé as part of our Drivetime Concert.

The Drivetime Concert is an hour of fantastic music from some of the greatest composers, and each year we form a huge choir to perform in it. There are just two short rehearsals in the week before the day itself, so it shouldn’t affect your other musical commitments and will be a great addition to your choir’s CV!

This year the Drivetime Choir will perform Haydn’s The Heavens are Telling from The Creation and John Williams’ adrenalin-pumping Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Last year we had nearly 600 singers of all ages and experience, making a truly breath-taking sound. For those who took part, it was an unforgettable experience.

Choir members will just need to attend at least one of the main rehearsals in the Royal Concert Hall on either Monday 24 June (7pm – 9pm) or Wednesday 26 June (7pm – 9pm). There’s a half-hour dress rehearsal with the orchestra on the day of the show at 5.15pm.

Rehearsals are informal and fun and are led by our dynamic duo, Angela Kay MBE, Director of Music for Everyone, and accompanist Angela Foan. You’ll be amazed at how far Angela can take the choir in just a couple of hours.

Joining the choir costs £5 and includes a seat in the Royal Concert Hall Stalls, from which the choir will perform the two pieces and also watch the whole concert.
To sign up, singers just need to complete the online form at  They’ll then receive a confirmation email with details of how to pay the £5 fee and information about rehearsals and learning the music. If you’d like me to send your choir some Drivetime leaflets, with the booking form on the back, please let me know.

If you have any queries or questions, please feel free to contact me at my email address.

We look forward to seeing you at rehearsals!
