Bristol Choral Society Virtual Choir
We’re delighted to share with you our virtual performance of Rachmaninov’s Borogoditse Devo.
Bristol Choral Society is conducted by Hilary Campbell and is known as one of the leading big city choirs in the UK. Established in 1889, the choir has an auditioned membership of around 160 singers and performs classical choral concerts with professional orchestras at the Colston Hall and Bristol Cathedral.
It was a real treat to sing in front of such a good quality choir.
