Another popular choir, this time a mixed-voice group, and with more than 80 singers, led by Grenville Jones. The Bath Chorus meet on Monday evenings at St Bart’s in Oldfield Park and have established themselves as one of the area’s most popular choirs.
This is an auditioned group that performs around the west country. This year on Friday 1 December the choir will again support the National Osteoporosis Society at the annual carol service at St John’s Catholic Church, South Parade.
The Bath Chorus’ own carol concert, supporting the British Heart Foundation, is at St Michael’s on Sunday 10 December, and on Saturday 16 December the choir will travel to Ledbury Parish Church where they have been invited to perform a concert of Christmas music.
New members are always welcome. The choir regularly sings in eight parts. At present there are 28 sopranos, 26 alto voices, 15 bass and 12 tenors.
– Christmas Celebration – Sunday 10 December, St Michael’s Church, 7.30pm, tickets: £15 from Bath Box Office, raising money for the British Heart Foundation.
