Bridge of Weir Choral Society
Come and Sing!
New members always welcome
If you love singing why not come along and join Bridge of Weir Choral Society.
We are a friendly group who meet on Tuesday evenings from September to April
in the Lower Hall of St Columba Church, Kilmacolm and we always welcome
new members. The choir rehearses on Tuesdays at 7.30pm. New members will
be made very welcome. If you are interested, please contact our secretary Fiona
on 07470 440027. Alternatively, just turn up to the first rehearsal and identify
yourself to any choir member, who will point you in the direction of a committee
We usually stop for a ‘cuppa’ and a chat half way through practices as the social
side is as important to us as the singing.
No auditions are necessary - just a desire to enjoy singing and
making music with others, so come along and join us.
Our musical director is Christopher Barr who in 2012 was awarded the
National Youth Choir of Scotland Student conductor Bursary which allowed him
to study under Christopher Bell as the Assistant conductor of the National Boys
Choir of Scotland. Recent achievements include conducting the world premiere
of Ken Johnston's "Flodden 1513" with Stirling Schools Choirs and NYCoS
Stirling Area Choir as part of the Cappella Nova Stirling 500 festival; directing
choral workshops for Glasgow Spring Sing and the amaSing Festival and off
stage conducting for Scottish Opera's production of Gareth Williams "Elephant
Angel". During the Commonwealth games he was chorus master for the
Glasgow UNESCO City of Music Nicola Benedetti Secret Flashmob project and
workshop leader at the ‘Jump, Swim, Run’ family session as part of the
BigBigBig Sing at Glasgow Green.
