Rehearsals for the new season started on Monday 7 January when, under the excellent leadership of our Musical Director, James Crawshaw, we started to prepare for the annual Spring Concert, which is being held this year on Saturday 11 May at the United Church, Bridport.
Bridport Choral Society is a warm and friendly group and always welcomes new members. They have a policy of no auditions for those wishing to join, but do ask for some musical knowledge (ability to read music is useful but not essential), enthusiasm and commitment to the choir. We meet on Mondays during our two annual sessions at 7.30 pm in the Bridport United Church Hall in East Street, until 9:30 p.m. and also put on a Christmas Concert in December. The cost per term to become a member is only £35.
The benefits of singing are well known – it releases endorphins to lift your mood, reduces stress and it’s an aerobic activity which gets oxygen into your blood for better circulation. Apart from that, it’s fun! If you would like to join the choir for the new season, contact details are on this website, and our Facebook page, or just simply turn up ten minutes before the start of a rehearsal, dates on the Calendar page of this site.
