The choir hosts regular Come and Sing events which are open to any singer. Singers from within and outside the choir get together for a fun music making afternoon with our conductor Hilary Campbell, accompanist Steven Kings and often other professional singers, including our Choral Scholars for any solo pieces.
The ability to read music is recommended but not essential and over the past few years we have tackled such pieces as Will Todd’s Mass in Blue, Choruses from Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man. Even during the pandemic we had a Stay and Sing via Zoom and sang John Rutter’s Magnificat. There are two rehearsal periods, with a break, finishing with a rendition of the work at the end of the afternoon. We will provide scores and refreshments! Hilary’s dynamic and inspiring leadership is guaranteed to make for a very enjoyable singing day and performance.
Our next Come & Sing will be an open rehearsal, a chance to see what our usual rehearsal's are like and an opportunity to sing through Handel's Messiah. It will be on Saturday 16 September 2023 and will be led by our dynamic MD Hilary Campbell.
More information and tickets available here.
If you feel inspired to join us we will be sing the Messiah in concert on Saturday 16 December in the newly opened Bristol Beacon.
