Bearsden Choir was formed following a performance of Handel’s Messiah at Christmas in 1968. From this modest beginning, the choir has grown in stature to take its place amongst Scotland’s finest choirs. With current membership of around 100, it is always keen to recruit new singers.
Under the inspiring leadership of Andrew Nunn, the choir offers singers new musical challenges, whilst recognising the enduring popularity of the great traditional choral favourites. Members foresee exciting times ahead and relish the opportunity of conveying audiences on magical musical adventures.
