Come join the Bristol Hippodrome Choir
The Bristol Hippodrome Choir is affiliated with the Bristol Hippodrome and is Bristol's premier choir specialising in Musical Theatre.
We are a community based choir formed in 2013. We hold rehearsals on Monday lunchtimes and Tuesday evenings. Our repertoire is varied from Musical Theatre, Gospel to Jazz/Pop and Blues with original compositions written for the choir.
We are open to beginners and those with more experience. Music is taught to aurally to help cover anyone who can't read music and sheet music for those who can. You are very welcome to come along to a taster session to see if it's the choir for you. Accessibility for all who'd like to participate is an important part of our choir.
We have performed for the BBC, with Russell Watson and Sam Bailey at the Bristol Hippodrome and regularly put on concerts throughout the year.
