CitySound Voices are back singing together at St. Philip and St. James Church, Odd Down, Bath with rehearsals on Wednesdays, 7:15- 9:15pm in preparation for our September concert. New members are always welcome.
Throughout the pandemic, we have experienced singing on Zoom, in groups of 6 in gardens and latterly in a socially distanced group in the garden of Claverton Village Hall. We have been sunburnt, caught in hailstorms and have also needed to thaw out at times, but in spite of all this, we have kept together.
We will hold our first concert together on September 11th under the baton of our new MD–Jonathan Rawles.
We are CitySound Voices, a small dynamic choir of accomplished singers formed in 2012 with Ruth McKibbin as Director of Music. We aim to entertain our audiences with an exciting and varied repertoire, performing works by composers such as Haydn, Elgar, Jamie Cullum and Queen. Although the choir sings mainly in and around Bath, it has also performed at Aldeburgh, Wells Cathedral and at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall.
Our musical director is extremely talented and versatile musician Jon Rawles who has conducted and performed at concert venues across the country and our accompanist Peter French brings with him 20 years experience of musical theatre.
We like to sing with other choirs and musicians and are particularly keen to support the work of young musicians. We enjoy singing music by living composers such as Philip Stopford and Judith Weir. Fundraising for charities is an important part of our work. Our Spring of Hope concert raised £464 for the Hope and Homes for Children charity!
