BLOC is an amateur group of people of many nationalities, composed of adults and children of all ages. Although singing is the company’s main concern, the social side is not neglected and several events are organised throughout the year, the main ones being the Christmas party which usually follows the AGM and the summer party. Other events, such as performance from scratch which give all members a chance to sing solo parts, and trips to see performances by other groups are organised from time to time. All members receive a regular update on activities through the BLOC notes newsletter.
Not more than two major shows are performed during one calendar year and you do not have to take part in every show. Non-singing members are also very welcome as willing hands are always needed backstage or to help with administration. Please feel free to sit in on a few rehearsals before committing yourself. All newcomers wishing to perform on stage are required to take an informal voice test, but you are not expected to have any musical training in order to join.
