Volunteer with us
High Street Bells Choir is supported by a team of skilled and committed volunteers. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the choir, and it is only through their help that we can continue to operate. Volunteers assist at rehearsal and events providing social, musical, event and administrative support.
Our volunteers include current and retired professionals, refugees, students, musicians. The common thread between all of them is their generosity in supporting others and contributing to this vibrant community.
We welcome more people to join our team of volunteers. Find out how you can get involved below.
Since the Choir began in April 2010, volunters have assisted with all aspects of administration.
This was formalised in 2013 with formation of a management committee.
Our social volunteers prepare tea and coffee to serve a light lunch after every rehearsal. While lunch is served, lots of conversations about people's lives are shared. In between the tea and coffee, volunteers find time to sing with the choir and help set up the lunch room.
Musicians have offerred their talents by accompanying the choir, writing songs with the choir and performing a song at events. Talking with singers about their musical experience and helping to select and arrange songs is always valued.
Recording rehearsals and concerts helps new singers learn songs.
Securing funding is an ongoing challenge. We have been successful in applying for a number of grants and we are working towards more secure ways of operating. We always appreciate any assistance with ideas for fundraising, someone who can help us write applications and generally help strengthen our ability to provide ongoing rehearsals.
Get in touch to help us with the choir's ongoing promotion including Facebook, radio interviews for choir members, booking singing events, taking and archiving photos, filing and uploading videos to youtube and looking after the website.
