Ooh! Is the choir hard to get into? I've been wanting to do something like that again for ages but I fear auditions.

There was an audition for Pembroke chapel choir but it was just "sing back this note/tune" kind of stuff and then a little bit of sight-reading. Didn't take very long & it's hard to feel too scared of a cute floppy-haired 20-year-old student boy. :-D (It helps that it's my old college, too, so I didn't feel too much of an outsider, though it is a bit weird being back there.)

Not all the college choirs require an audition, but not all of them let non-college-members in; not sure what the overlap is! I'd advise poking around on the college websites or asking on oxonians or somewhere.

Blackbird Leys Choir is fairly desperate for new singers at the mo. :-)

It's not to everyone's taste; in particular, if you are reasonably competent at reading music you might find it a bit tedious (I told j4 this and she didn't believe me till she went <g> — although to be fair I think that one rehearsal was atypically bad).
