For many years, the Choir sang almost exclusively in Bournemouth, but in 1979, it became the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus, working under the aegis of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

The Chorus has a membership of around 150 singers, and gives the majority of its concerts with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. However, it has also performed regularly with other orchestras, and gives regular concerts independently, either a capella, with organ or small ensembles. Conductors with whom it has appeared in recent years include Marin Alsop, Paul Daniel, Andrew Litton, Tamas Vasary, Richard Hickox, Wayne Marshall, Kees Bakels, David Hill, Bramwell Tovey and Kirill Karabits.
