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

member .

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.
