About the Choir

We are a friendly, non-auditioned choir who sing classical music. Our choir members come from all over Bristol – and beyond.

Come and Sing Handel's Messiah with the BCCS Choral Society

We're currently looking for new choir members. So if you'd like to join us, contact our Membership Secretary by emailing for more information and come to a rehearsal to see if it's for you.


We give 2 concerts a year – usually in March and June at venues in Bristol. Our Summer 'Pudding Concert' in June is well-known and well-loved: an evening of light music followed by a puddings-tasting (for audience and choir).


We usually hire or buy the music for a nominal amount.


Rehearsals are at the Cathedral School in central Bristol on Wednesday evenings 7:30-9:00pm (term-time only).

The Cathedral School is within walking distance of the city centre, with cycle racks nearby and some parking usually available in the school car park.

Get in touch to come to a rehearsal and see if it's for you!
