Diverse membership

We have a diverse membership from Bath and the surrounding area. Younger singers aged 16-25 are actively encouraged to apply for our bursaries to help support vocal and artistic development. We strive to create a friendly and supportive environment in which to make music of the highest possible quality.

Every other year the choir embarks on a tour to perform in one of the great musical cities of Europe; in 2017 we visited Bratislava, and in 2015 we sang three concerts near Paris including a Sunday evening recital in Chartres Cathedral.
