How to Book the Choir
Should you wish to organise a concert by the Derbyshire Community Male Voice Choir you would be responsible for:
Identifying a suitable venue capable of holding a minimum audience of 80-100 people, together with a stage or area large enough for a 40 strong choir.
Churches, church halls, community halls, school halls, etc are the most popular venues. A secure changing room for use by the choir should be available.
Providing a normal type piano at the venue (a good quality electric piano may be suitable).
Arranging your own publicity, ticket sales, etc.
A booking fee of £50 is payable on confirmation of a date for the concert. This fee is considerably lower than most other choirs and we look to supplement this fee with a retiring collection at the end of the concert. The vast majority of income raised by the choir is donated to their nominated charity at the end of the concert season.
A cancellation fee of £50 will be charged should the concert organiser cancel the concert at any time following a firm concert booking
The choir season runs from 1 October to 30 April each year.
Concerts are held on Friday evenings commencing at 7.45pm. Only in exceptional circumstances are concerts held on Saturday evening eg. distance for the choir to travel or the venue is not available on a Friday. Any preferred dates should be included in the application otherwise a date will be allocated.
The full season's programme of concerts commencing in October is decided by the choir committee who meet during June each year.
Requests for concerts should be made on the booking form and posted to the DCMVC Secretary.
