Would you like to sing with our choir? You can still sign up for this year!
Members of Popkoor Estrellas are busy rehearsing every Thursday night from 19:15 until 21:30. The 24 female students sing a repertoire that consists of a varied mix of pop songs.
The choir is conducted by Wilfred Reneman. When you want to become a member, he will carefully listen to your voice. He will determine if you can sing in tune and if you have rhythm. He will also listen to how high or low you can sing. This way, he can find out whether you’re a good fit for the choir and what voice group you belong to.
When you’re a member, you have to rehearse every Thursday. Next to the usual rehearsals you should also practice at home. You do not need to be able to read sheet music for this. You’ll get files that you can listen to at home. This way, you can listen to the notes. During the rehearsals, we will mainly work on singing together.
Because the choir is not big, all members are expected to be in a committee. One committee, for example, takes care of all things related to promotion, another organises fun activities like a running dinner or the yearly member weekend, and yet another comes up with all of the choreographies. A large advantage of this, is that it is easy for new members to connect with the other members and to make sure that everyone feels involved in the choir. This ensures that all of our members are very close. After the rehearsals, we can often be found on a terrace or at the karaokebar.
The next year, there is space for new members. Do you want to come to one of our rehearsals? Or do you want to know more about the choir? Send an email to email@example.com or fill in the contact form at the bottom of the page. You can also sign up for the open rehearsal on November 26 through the contact form on our events-page!
Membership and contribution
Popkoor Estrellas is a student choir. This means that only students can join the choir. When you stop studying, you can only stay for one year. Your membership starts once the conductor admits you to the choir. From that moment on, you can join the rehearsals and pay contribution. The contribution is 186 euros and is paid in three terms of 62 euros. Cancelling your membership can only be done by sending an email.
Are you an international student and are you interested in becoming a member of our choir? Feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will invite you to one of our rehearsals. However, it is important to know that our rehearsals will be fully in Dutch!
