Bath Abbey Choir continues a centuries-old choral tradition, which plays a vital part in the musical life of the abbey and the city. Bath Abbey has four choirs: boys, girls, men and a junior choir, called Melody Makers. The abbey has no choir school, which enables it to draw some of the most gifted young voices from a variety of local schools.
The 16 adult singers come from many different walks of life and live in and around Bath. The Abbey Choirs perform music at services every Sunday as well as a number special services throughout the year. They also undertake trips abroad, enjoying good relationships with churches in Bath’s twin cities and broadcast both on radio and TV, making regular appearances on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 3.
The abbey’s music department is currently run by director, Huw Williams. Applications from boys (aged seven – 10) and girls (aged 10 – 13) who enjoy singing, and have an appetite to work hard, are welcomed. Contact: HWilliams@bathabbey.org or tel: 07985 923 365 to find out more.
