We rehearse weekly in central Lincoln during the academic term on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30pm with a short break. Rehearsals are usually taken by the Musical Director. We also rehearse on the day of the concert in the concert venue.
We normally perform three concerts per year, one in each academic term. We perform in a variety of Churches and Concert venues in and around Lincoln. Recent venues have included The Drill Hall, St Giles' and St Nicholas' churches and The Chapter House of LIncoln Cathedral.
