Come and try out our choir! First taster session is free!
WINTER CONCERT 2017: If you fancy coming to hear us sing, our next concert is taking place at the Mary Harris Memorial Chapel on the Streatham Campus at 7:30pm on Tuesday 5th December!
There will be beautiful songs, brand new dance moves and refreshments available for all. Suggested donation: Students £3.50, Non-Students £5, Children free!
Taught by a professional, fun and friendly director, we rehearse every Tuesday from 7-8:30pm in the Forum Seminar Rooms, singing gorgeous music from all around the world. This means different languages, lovely harmonies and a chance to try something new every week! Unlike many other choirs, we don't audition - everyone is welcome. We are a diverse group, with members coming together from all across the planet to create a wonderful sound! We also welcome non-student members, which makes us unique amongst the university's non-classical choirs and gives us a real community feel.
As a choir we perform in many concerts: at the end of every term, big yearly events (Bristol Choir Convention and Exeter Respect Festival) and some new and exciting venues (last year we sang at the Eden Project and at the Corn Exchange). We already have events lined up for this year, including an African Charity concert and our Winter Concert in the Chapel.
As far as instruments are concerned, we mainly sing ‘a cappella’ (unaccompanied – just voices in harmony) but occasionally we’ll go wild and add a percussion instrument for added effect - such as buffalo drums and rattles to accompany a Native American song! Some of our songs also include the occasional dance move...
Cost for students: £20 annual membership + £2 subs for each session.
Cost for non-students: £60/ £50(concession) per 10 week term in Autumn and Spring. The Summer term is proportionately reduced as it is a short term. (This includes an annual payment to the student Guild for being a student Guild 'Associate Member').
This covers our brilliant director's salary.
Feel free to come along to any session - your first one is free - and experience our fun and friendly choir!
