    All four Open Rehearsal session are SOLD OUT. For returns list or information about auditioning later, please email

    Only singers who have booked in advance can attend the open rehearsals - it will not be possible to book a place on the door.

    If you are interested in auditioning for the Belfast Philharmonic Choir for the 21/22 season, join us during our two open rehearsals of the term on Wednesday 15th and 22nd September! You can sing with members while we learn music for our planned season opening concert in November 2021, and find out more about the audition process.

    For these open rehearsals, there is an early (7.30pm) and late (8.45pm) session on each evening. Each session has a strictly limited number of places. You can book for one session on each evening, but you will not be able to attend two sessions on a single evening. I.e. you can book a place on both Wednesday 15th September and Wednesday 22nd September - either both early or both late or one of each - but not an early and late session on the same evening.

    We will have Covid-19 measures in place, and all singers will be asked to wear a mask unless exempt under the regulations. (If you are exempt, please contact us in advance and we will advise you about alternative measures.) All attendees will be sent a document beforehand advising them of the measures in place and will be asked to confirm that they will not attend if currently experiencing any coronavirus symptoms or if they are a recent close contact of someone who has tested positive.

    We anticipate that auditions to join the choir will be held on Thursday 30th September. Auditionees will be asked to sing one set choral extract and one piece of their own choice. Further information will be sent in advance of the audition. If you would like to audition but cannot attend an open rehearsal session, please email Laura (

    To book for an open rehearsal session please click View Details beside your chosen date and time, and then the red Buy Tickets button. You will be asked for your name and contact information as part of the booking process. Before the open rehearsal you will be sent a form to complete asking for your voice part and singing experience, which will need to be completed for each person attending if you have booked for multiple singers.

    If you are no longer able to attend a place you have booked, please let us know so we can allocate it to someone else.

    If you have any questions about the open rehearsals, covid safety measures, or auditioning and singing with the choir, please email Laura (
