Rehearsals get under way again on Tuesday 25 January at Yarralumla Uniting Church, 1 Denman Street, Yarralumla. Time: 7.30 pm

The Llewellyn Choir's aims are to produce a high standard of choral music and to have fun both in rehearsing and performing. Over the choir's 30 years, we have developed a set of standards to help to ensure that we can meet these aims. They are meant to enhance, not restrict our enjoyment of the choir.
As a choir member, you are expected to:
- Be committed. Attend regularly and inform section representatives about absences. Several absences during a rehearsal period, particularly close to a concert, may mean you will not sing in the concert.
- Practise the music at home and attend extra rehearsals and sectionals when possible.
- Arrive on time at rehearsals.
- Take responsibility for learning: come to rehearsals prepared with appropriate music and a pencil and eraser, and ask about any content covered in your absence if you have missed a rehearsal.
- Care for your musical score, particularly when it has been hired or borrowed, and mark it only with a 2B pencil.
- Take part wherever possible in committee, social, fundraising and promotional activities.

Choral Public Domain Library
The Choral Public Domain Library (CPDL) is an internet-based free sheet music website which specializes in choral music. It hosts a large collection of music scores and other supporting files (such as midi or other sound files) which can be freely downloaded and used.
The Silvis Woodshed
In the old days a singer would hide out in the woodshed to learn his notes. Now we have tools like midi to help us along. George Silvis hopes for this page to be a collection of midi files and tools to help singers learn their notes so that they can be ready to turn it into music when they go to rehearsal. A fantastis source of midi files for rehearsal.
King's Lynn Festival Chorus
King's Lynn Festival Chorus is the resident choir for one of the UK's growing music festivals. The Chorus was formed in 1977 for an inaugural concert conducted by Christopher Hogwood.
