We continue our regular Wednesday evening rehearsals for 2019 and we recommence developing our new repertoire with Jeremy Avis.
If you fancy trying us out, feel free to come along for a free taster session!
Concert news – Choir Convention, St Georges
We had a fabulous time singing at the 2019 Choir convention on Sunday 17 March. Our MD, Jeremy Avis, set the choir two very challenging, but wonderful songs to sing:
Wangol – a beautiful Haitian folk song expressing hope of the Haitian people for change and a brighter future for their country. Wangol is a spirit and he is addressed in the song “Wangol, you are leaving. When will I see you again? The country is changing.”

Cablecar – a poem written by Lawrence Sail (2002) about the journey of a cablecar rising from the bottom of the valley up to the dizzy heights. Music arranged by Jeremy.

Concert news – Borderlands UK, Assisi Centre
Following two very enjoyable and successful concerts for Borderlands, we have now arranged to go back again on Saturday 22 June 2019. We have invited the Gasmen Collective to join us and we look forward to singing with them.
This will be a great opportunity to perform the new songs that we have learnt with Jeremy this year whilst raising money for Borderlands.
It will be an evening concert, more details to follow nearer the date. Meanwhile, if you would like to know more about the charity, have a look at the charity’s website: https://www.borderlands.uk.
Concert news – past dates
In 2018, we performed a sample of our favourite songs at St Georges and held a fabulous Christmas open rehearsal and singalong for friends, family and choir supporters in December. This will definitely become a regular annual event.
We sang at Borderlands in May and December 2017 – two great performances!
And in December 2015 – we performed at Southmead Hospital atrium.
