"I really enjoyed myself. The whole choir made me feel welcome, the info at the beginning was useful and it was a treat to be sung to by the choir. I'll definitely be back next week" - Ian (January 2020)

We rehearse on Tuesday evenings in Bristol City Centre.
As a community group, we don't audition - anyone is able to join, regardless of experience or ability, and we use a variety of methods to learn new material; you don't have to be able to read music. We learn a wide repertoire, singing pieces from a multitude of genres and we welcome song ideas from choir members.
We also meet socially – the choir provides a social network for those who want an alternative to the bar scene, and people quickly form friendships that extend beyond the rehearsal space.
To find out more or to book your place at our next new members' evening, please fill out the form below.
The evenings are divided into five sections:
initially, all of the potential new members meet representatives of the main committee in our rehearsal venue before the rest of the choir arrives, giving an opportunity to learn about the structure of the choir, ask any questions, and meet some of the people who help administrate the choir.
then the rest of the choir will join us and we’ll spend a little time warming up as a large group
next, the whole choir will perform a few songs from our recent repertoire, demonstrating what we do together – in short, we audition for you!
then we have an extended break for tea and cake, with a chance to meet, mingle and chat to existing members
finally, we'll learn something new together to give a taste of how we rehearse as a group.
Most community groups and choirs charge a subscription fee. At Sing Out Bristol we give new members two free rehearsals (in addition to the new members evening) to decide whether the choir is really for them.
If you decide to join, our subscription fee is currently: £20 per month payable by standing order. If you are unable to meet this financial commitment, we'd be happy to discuss other arrangements with you..
