Chamber Choir

Chamber Choir offers singers with some experience and sight reading ability to rehearse and perform more challenging choral repertoire from the sixteenth century to the present day. We regularly sing in Winchester Cathedral, Christchurch Priory and St. Peter’s Church in Bournemouth and each year we perform an opera in Poole’s historic Guildhall. We do not hold formal auditions but new members are asked to attend an initial rehearsal to ensure an effective balance of voices is maintained within the group. The ensemble is only open to students.

Rehearsals: Wednesdays 4.45pm-6.15pm in the Student Hall, Talbot House

Subscription for the year: Free to all BU/AUB/AECC students
