In light of all restrictions being legally lifted and free testing not available as of 1st April 2022, JCS Committee has decided that wearing a mask when singing and obtaining a negative LFT before attending rehearsal is no longer mandatory. For everyone's comfort, please continue to be mindful of others and their personal space. JCS Committee would also like to appeal to community spirit to all singers, visitors and our audience: if you feel unwell and/or
have any C-19 symptoms (click here to see the updated list), please do not attend rehearsals and/or concerts. Equally, if you are aware there is a heightened risk you may be incubating the disease and therefore that you may be infectious, kindly consider the potential impact your attendance may have on those around you.
JCS Committee will continue to follow any further government advice and/or NHS guidance to make appropriate amendments and clarification if necessary.
JAGS Choral Society (JCS) is an adult choir which usually rehearses every term-time Tuesday evening from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at James Allen's Girls' School in East Dulwich under the baton of the school's Director of Music, Peter Gritton.
JCS started as a group of parents to support school music, especially by adding tenors and basses, and now it exists as a separate choir of up to about 50 singers, including all voices (SATB), made up of parents, ex-parents, friends and people who live in the area - in short, anyone who enjoys singing! It is a very friendly group and welcomes all singers as a community choir. Although there are no auditions, we do expect people to be able to sing in tune. Reading music is a big help but not absolutely necessary at first, since it is a skill that can be developed. Taster visits are free so, if you're not sure whether you'd like it, you can come along and see how it feels! If you decide to join as a choir member, subscription fees
as of Spring Term 2022 are:
· £10 refundable score deposit
· £70 per term - reduced to £65 for early birds
· Total per term = £80 or £75 for early birds
Concessions are available – only the Chair and Treasurer will be aware of your arrangement.

We are most grateful to James Allen's Girls' School whose very generous support enables the choir to continue and flourish.
