Cabot Circus

'In the Bleak Mid Winter' must have been the song of the day for 25+ choristers who braved the pouring rain and cold wind to sing in Cabot Circus for Ronald Mcdonald House. A charity which provids accomadation for families so they can be close to a child who is in hospital in Bristol. Well Done Lads, loved the red noses by the end of the carols !

SINGING FOR SOUTHMEAD HOSPITAL

Saturday 1st December saw some of the lads singing at John Lewis the Mall Cribbs collecting for Southmead Hospital. Unfortunately Elton John was unable to join us so our numbers were down! (Never mind I preferred the penguins), so instead we decided to plug a few other records from some other well known artists (back left behind the basses).

TOUR OF AUSTRIA OCTOBER 2018

In October BRISTOL MALE VOICE CHOIR enjoyed a highly successful tour to Vienna and Salzburg. One of the many highlights was singing in the magnificent St Stephens Cathedral in Vienna where we were privileged to sing during the Mass followed by an hourlong concert that was very much enjoyed by the audience and the many tourists passing through the Cathedral.

Great evening singing at Westbury-on-Trym Methodist Church on Sept 15 raising funds for St Peters Hospice and the Church.
Our wonderful soloist this evening was Flautist Rachel Misson, who was accompanied by her mother. We really enjoyed Rachel’s beautiful playing.

First Aid Evening

Members of the choir took a welcome break from rehearsals on the 3rd August to learn some CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) in the hope it will never be needed.

Well done guys

Page Park

With temperatures reaching into the high 20’s is was a lovely sing in the cool shade in the bandstand in Page Park. In what was a beautiful afternoon it was great (as choristers) to look out and see so many familiar faces including choir families, past choristers and ‘Friends of the Choir’, as well lots of people enjoying fine singing just sat in deck chairs. Thanks to the Friends of Page Park for inviting us and for all the hard work they do to make the park such a nice place.
“Please invite us back!”

So our 50th birthday Concert took place on July 7th on one of the hottest days of the year and on the day England beat Sweden to progress to the semi-finals  of the world cup. (There, I got that of my chest).
The concert with guests the Morriston Orpheus Choir was almost a sellout and both choirs were magnificent with approx 120 choristers taking the stage for some joint items and joined at the end of the evening by Niall Allen  to sing ‘When you walk through a storm’ from Carousel.
The programme featured traditional Male Voice Choir and modern favourites with the choirs also singing in Welsh and Italian and even a few odd “hiccups” in Bristols ‘What shall we do with the Drunken Sailor’.
Emma Britton from Radio Bristol was in complete control as compere for the evening and even managed the pronunciation of some of the Welsh songs with ease.
It was so nice to see some old familiar faces in the audience and we’re sure  they enjoyed the concert as much as we did.
Thanks to all who made the evening such a success and heres to the next 50 years

Winterbourne Barn

What a wonderful afternoon we had singing in one of the oldest barns in the country at nearby Winterbourne helping to raise funds for the restoration of the Barn. Joining with us on this occasion was the Frampton Shanty men who as their name suggests entertained us with a variety of sea shanties and old english work songs. Im sure we’ll be seeing more of them!
