Choir Summary.

    Choir Summary

    Well into our second century, we are fortunate to have a strong feeling of continuity in the Choir. At a committee meeting in October 2011, Paul O’Dell was elected Chairman of Birmingham Choral Union. He has been a member of the Choir for many years, serving as Hon.Treasurer for a considerable period prior to this election. The current Board of Trustees (Committee) has a good balance of long serving and newer members in it. We also actively encourage younger singers. Gradually, the Choir is increasing in strength and we hope that more singers will join us for the interesting programmes of the next few years. Through the years, the quality of our work and standard of performance have been high and continue to develop. The Choir always has a positive welcome waiting for new singing members from diverse backgrounds. Further details about us may be found elsewhere on our website, please see our Rehearsal Details.
