Our 'Come and Sing' workshop, with Hilary Campbell and Steve Kings, is a chance to join Bristol Choral Society for an afternoon of exciting and engaging music drawn from John Rutter's 'Gloria'. As always, this is a totally inclusive event, music will be provided, and Hilary will support everyone to take part in her own inimitable way. 

Rutter composed the Gloria to be sung as a concert work. He directed the first performance on his first visit to the United States in May 1974. Some of you will already be familiar with it, but for many of us, this is something new and so we will all be 'in it' together!  As John Rutter himself says: 'The music is simple and direct in style'. All are welcome!

'The Big Picture' (our choir's CD) is ON SALE at only £5, and you can order your copy online when you book for this event.  Choral Society members are busy baking cakes for the tea break, music will be provided on the day, and tickets cost just £20 for the day, or £10 for those under 25. 



We're a friendly bunch of music lovers, and if you haven't been before, do come along to meet us - or to try out the choir!
