    Ever thought of joining a choir? On Tuesday 19th September from 7.30 – 10pm the Chiltern Choir is holding an open rehearsal at the Free Church, Hillside Road, Chorleywood, WD3 5AP. Under the baton of Michael Cayton, Principal Conductor of the Watford Philharmonic Society and veteran broadcaster, we will be rehearsing Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and Fauré’s Requiem. As well as the major choral works, we perform bluesy, jazzy, ethnically inspired compositions. Why not try us out?
