Q. How can I join DepList as a Full Member?
Once you have found a current member of DepList who is willing and qualified to sponsor you onto DepList, your sponsor will be asked to confirm their nomination and to provide a reference for you. You will be asked to:
Singers will also be asked obtain a further reference from someone who has employed their services in a professional capacity
Neverthless, the final decision rests with the Owners, and the Owners do not consider themselves under any obligation to state their reasons for not accepting an application. Only experienced professional musicians with proven competence and a good track record will be admitted.
Students in full-time education and those under 21 years of age do not qualify to join. Recent graduates who have been choral scholars should have six months' depping experience in a variety of contexts outside the university where they held their choral scholarship. Those without a choral background will need at least a year of regular work experience in the right repertoire and venues before they can be considered to meet our admission requirements. Membership of DepList is by subscription, which is payable annually. The fee is currently £10, valid for one calendar year from the date of joining. Lapsed members wishing to rejoin should contact us directly.
Q. How do I sponsor a new member onto DepList?
If you have been a paid-up Full Member (not an Associate) for at least six months you may sponsor a new member onto the list by filling in our sponsors' form. You will find this in the Members' Area.
Q. What do I get in return for my subs?
When you join DepList you will automatically receive messages from other members and outside advertisers who are seeking deputies. If you need a deputy at short notice, you will be able to post a single message that will be sent to all the subscribers on the list. As a member, you will also have the option to add your name and details to the listings on this site (see below).
