Do you love singing? Come and try a choir practice with Birmingham Festival Choral Society! (No obligation). Chat to our singers over coffee and cake in the interval.
We are a friendly mixed choir who sing a wide variety of the world’s best classical choral music. We’ll be learning Carmina Burana and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms this term, in preparation for concerts with the Liverpool Welsh Choral.
As well as concerts in Birmingham and the Midlands, we tour abroad every 3 years – great for singing experiences, as well as strengthening choir friendships.
We look forward to meeting you!
Wednesday 26th April, 7.00 for 7.15pm. Finishing time 9.30pm
Lordswood Girls School, Knightlow Road, Harborne, Birmingham B17 8QB

Have you made a New Year Resolution to join a choir? Come along to our free Open Rehearsal next Wednesday, 4th January and give us a try, with no obligation! We recommend arriving at 7pm, in order to find your way around and meet some singers before the rehearsal starts at 7.15pm. Please pass the message on to any prospective singers you know.
More information about the choir can be found here: Join our choir
Next Wednesday is also special because we will be welcoming our new Music Director, David Wynne. There will be an extra long coffee break (with cake!) to give us time to get to know each other.

There is some lovely music coming up this term, so we do hope that new singers will choose to join us in preparing for our next concert:
If you’d like to give us a try but missed the Open Rehearsal last week, it’s not too late! New singers would still be welcome this Wednesday.
Ten new singers came for the first time last week – here are some of their comments:
I can hardly wait for next week! The choir sounded brilliant and I heard wonderful reports of the tour. Everyone I spoke to does seem full of excitement about everything to come!
I really enjoyed the sing last evening and am looking forward to coming again next week.
It was lovely to have such a warm reception from everyone.
It was a lovely evening last Wednesday
I did enjoy the evening, and was most impressed with the standard of singing, sight reading and the general organisation.
I will be back for more next week!
