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:
Following a superb performance of some lesser-known works by Vaughan Williams at the beginning of November, we celebrated the festive season in true style at our Christmas concert in December. A huge thank-you goes to our audience at this, which raised around £300 for the Scottish Association of Mental Health, who are extremely grateful for all your generous donations.
Our 3rd performance of the season, in March, featured English composers Elgar, Parry and Stanford. Also in March, we hosted a very well-attended open rehearsal of Mozart’s Requiem.
We now look forward to our final concert of this session on May 16th in Glasgow Cathedral.
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!
