Singing in a choir is a brilliant way to meet new people and it has been proven to instil a sense of happiness and increase wellbeing.

The choir performs several times a year under the direction of conductor, Pete Harrison with the full Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. There are no auditions to join and the ability to read music is not essential.

Choir members enjoy being part of the BSO family, sharing experiences in rehearsal and on the concert platform, with social events alongside plenty of tea, biscuits and fun, as well as benefitting from ticket discounts for all BSO promoted concerts.

  • Rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings from 7.15-9.30pm beginning 7 September 2022 at Richard Taunton Sixth Form College, Hill Lane, Southampton, SO15 5RL. except 28 September which will be at Abbey Reform Church, Romsey (Half term break: Wednesday 26 October)
  • Please ensure that you can attend the rehearsals (you may miss up to 3 rehearsals by prior agreement) and that you are able to perform on Sunday 4 December.
  • Music and audio teaching tracks are available for download from the BSO Voices Resources page.
