A performance of Handel’s Messiah at Christmas in 1968 led to the formation of the choir, and it was from this modest beginning that Bearsden Choir has grown in stature to take its place as one of Scotland’s finest choirs. Currently, the choir has a membership of around 100 people and is always keen to recruit new singers.
Under the leadership of Andrew Nunn, the choir offers singers the chance to face new musical challenges, and to tackle innovative and inspiring works, whilst recognising the enduring popularity of the great traditional choral favourites. Members foresee exciting times ahead and they relish the opportunity of conveying audiences on more magical, musical adventures.
Andrew introduces this podcast about our choir:
The Choir are now half-way through the year and following a fantastic performance of some of the rarer and lesser known works of music by Vaughan Williams at the beginning of November, we then celebrated the festive season in true style at our Christmas concert in December.
A huge thank-you to our audience from the Christmas concert where we raised around £300 for the Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH) who are extremely grateful for all your generous donations.
Our 3rd performance of the season will take place on Saturday 7th March when we perform works by English composers Elgar, Parry and Stanford. Full details of this concert are available here.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Come&Sing evening on Wednesday 18th March. This will take place at New Kilpatrick Church Halls in Bearsden and the music will be Mozart’s Requiem. The evening is free to attend and more information is available here.
Please, do come and listen or, why not join the Choir and enjoy the thrill of being a part of the performance.
We are always keen to recruit new members. Have a look through our website and if you feel you’d like to be a part of Bearsden Choir, please do get in touch. You can be assured of a very warm welcome and much fun!
