Come & Sing VERDI REQUIEM with orchestra, Colston Hall, Bristol 6th June Can't Post

Bristol Choral Society are pleased to host 'BRISTOL SINGS!' on Saturday 6 June 2009 at the Colston Hall, Bristol

A HUGE Come & Sing Verdi Requiem

The day will start at 10am with a choral rehearsal, followed by an afternoon rehearsal together with orchestra (Bristol Concert Orchestra) and soloists from Welsh National Opera in preparation for an informal concert at 7:30pm, all under the inspirational baton of our superb conductor, Adrian Partington.

We hope to fill the hall with singers and leave a little room for an audience for the evening performance!

The aims of the day are to:

  • Have fun and enjoy performing this thrilling piece with full orchestral accompaniment and professional soloists
  • Raise funds for 2 local charities - all profits are to be donated to BRACE (supporting research into Alzheimer's) and The Julian Trust (supporting Bristol's homeless)
  • To celebrate the opening of the Colston Hall's superb new multi-million pound foyer redevelopment

Singers of any standard are welcome - there will be plenty of singers there who know the work well to help out those who may not be so familiar with it - the main aim is to have fun! Scores will be available to hire on the day for £1 - please bring your own if you can!

Tickets for singers are £15 (£5 for under 19s in full-time education) and are available now from 0117 962 4991 or by post using the booking form:


Please tell all your singing friends - the more people we have singing the more spectacular the day will be - there are nearly 2,000 seats in the Colston Hall, so let's try to fill them all!

Several hundred singers have booked already, but there is still room for more!

Why not come along too - the more singers we have, the better the day will be, and the more we will raise for the charities.

£15 is great value for a whole day 10am - 9pm, including taking part in a huge performance with orchestra and professional soloists. Tel: 0117 962 4991 to book now!
