Come & Sing! Choral Music Through The Ages

WE ARE FULL! Our upcoming event is now fully subscribed. If you wish to register your interest and place your name on a reserve list please email treasurer@burychoral.org with your name, email address, phone number and voice part and we will let you know if a place becomes available.

If you struggled to register in January but have paid, we have put you on our list.

Join us for a day rehearsing and then performing works which show the breadth and variety of choral music, accompanied by Jonathan Ellis and under the charismatic direction of Bury Choral’s Director of Music, Juan Ortuño. This is an opportunity to sing and rehearse some great pieces and learn vocal technique. All of the works are tuneful and well known and the emphasis of the day will be on enjoying singing together.
