Over a 100 people joined us for an afternoon of singing Opera Choruses on the 3rd February.

Members of BCS with a warm welcome at registration

The weather might have been dreary outside but our Musical Director Hilary Campbell accompanied by our Assistant MD Steven Kings soon had us warming up and summoning up our acting skills - some more enthusiastically than others!

Warming up!

We traversed a wide repertoire from the familiar including Verdi - imagining we were hebrew slaves, the beautiful Puccini Humming Chorus to the less well known but powerful Bernstein - Make our Garden Grow.

There was, of course, a well earned break for tea and cake and we completed the afternoon by performing the six opera choruses we had spent the afternoon working on, to a very discerning audience!
