FCMG welcomes new singers from age four, once they start school, up to age eighteen.
New members are welcome to join FCMG throughout the year, provided we have space in your singer’s year group. Reception-age children may join the Dots at any point during term. Our Beginner Choir (Years 1 and 2) and Intermediate Choir (Years 3-6) are also not auditioned, and welcome new joiners in the first half of term. These groups are a great opportunity for young children to discover a passion for choral singing, teaching a sound musical and vocal foundation in a fun, energising environment.
Singers in year 6 and above can audition for our Senior and Chamber Choirs, who sing a range of demanding but very rewarding repertoire under the guidance of our Artistic Director Grace Rossiter, with regular exciting external performance opportunities.
The children and young people who make up FCMG are drawn from a wide variety of social, economic and cultural backgrounds. There are currently over 200 members of FCMG.
If you have a child who might be interested in joining FCMG, please use the contact form below to tell us a little about the singer, their age and musical experience. We will then get in contact with you to arrange a visit, trial session or audition as appropriate and if you have any questions we’ll be happy to help.
FCMG is absolutely committed to ensuring that all singers, who wish to, can access our choirs. Bursaries are available to assist with membership fees and in addition we established a Covid Emergency Fund in 2020, as we are acutely aware of the financial pressures the pandemic may have placed on parents. Please contact our Treasurer, Rouli Kalodiki at email@example.com for a confidential conversation.
FCMG is a registered charity. We have no premises of our own, but rehearse in rented space at a North London primary school. Apart from the music staff and a part-time General Manager, the choir is very much dependent on parents who voluntarily take on all other aspects of its organisation including fundraising, chaperoning etc. If you are able to help with this you can let us know in your membership form and we will be happy to welcome you to the team!
