Membership


Variations recruits singers, musicians, actors and backstage workers to assist with concerts, productions and other events.

The Association encompasses a wide range of musical styles including baroque, chamber music, classical, light, jazz, swing, spiritual, popular and music hall, on stage, informally and concert style. It is available for private functions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and other celebrations.

Admission to the Variations Ensemble Vocale requires an Audition. You will require a good ear and passion for music.

Variations membership costs €45 a year except for council members who pay €25.

Friends of Variations

Membership is available for people who support the Association but do not necessarily want to be involved. They are sent regular newsletters, notices of forthcoming events and ticket information as well as invitations to social events. Membership is 10€ per annum.

They will receive two free tickets to the Easter concert and an invitation to meet with the conductor, soloists, choir and musicians after the concert. They will be invited to all Variations social functions. They will automatically become a member of the Variations Association and be able to attend and vote at the Associations AGM.
