Choral Workshop 2014 – Handel’s Messiah

Saturday 25 January 2014   9.30am – 5pm   St Michael’s Without, Bath

All singers are warmly invited to join us for our annual singers workshop and to take the opportunity of working with the inspirational choral conductor Nigel Perrin. In 2014 we will be studying Handel’s Messiah – probably one of the best-loved, and certainly one of the best-known, works in the choral repertoire. This oratorio, telling the story of Christ’s life and death, is a feast of magnificent musical offerings: it explores the depths of despair, quiet contemplation and, of course, joy, through the energy and exuberance of the “Hallelujah” chorus. The day’s workshop will conclude with a cameo performance.

Workshop Director: NIGEL PERRIN

Tickets £20  (£10 for CBBC members)
Score hire £2  (Novello Watkins Shaw edition)

Open rehearsal

Monday 3 February 2014   7.15 – 9.30pm   Willett Hall, King Edward’s School, Bath

From time to time the CBBC holds an open singing evening, usually on a regular rehearsal night, to which everyone is invited. Come and sing with us for an hour or so, and then join us for an informal buffet supper. It’s a great way to find out first-hand what we get up to – and you might feel inspired to take the next step to join us.

A recent guest wrote back to us:
“It was your website that led me to the open evening of the Bath Bach Choir. The photos made the choir gatherings look relaxed, and the text was very welcoming. The idea of an invitation to an open evening was brilliant – very unthreatening, inclusive and not at all scary”.
