SuPhil is a non auditioning choir, and is the student section of the Southampton City Philharmonic Choir. We aim to make music live in Southampton . We sing classical choral pieces, and have 2-3 concerts a year. Our professional conductor takes weekly rehearsals with a professional accompanist, and the choir is over 180 strong, with the student section being approximately 30+.
The mix of the two choirs gives us a unique blend of youthful voices with those of more experienced singers, as well as offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform musical works on a massive scale in an ensemble of over 180 voices.
These are the current membership plans offered by Philharmonic Choir, although many groups offer a free period for new members to try out their group.
Year Membership (£25) Members attend weekly rehearsals at Turner Sims Concert Hall with the Southampton Philharmonic Choir and are led by a professional musical director, to prepare for three concerts throughout the year. Concerts are held in either the Southampton o2 Guildhall or Winchester Cathedral - for many, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform in these venues. Membership fees support the funding of hiring Turner Sims for rehearsals, hiring concert venues and hiring scores from libraries.
