Welcome to Basildon Choral – a *diamond* choir

60 years old this year!

Why not join us as we prepare for our birthday concert (see below)? No audition is required. Come along and give us a try. We are a friendly crowd. Rehearsals are Wednesdays 7.45-9.45pm at Langdon Hills Methodist Church, Basildon SS16 6EX.

We are a growing choir of long standing with an excellent reputation. We sing five concerts a year including a family carol concert, light music, a ‘Come and Sing’ and choral works with orchestra, using professional musicians and soloists. We also enjoy singing tours abroad and fun events throughout the year.

*Diamond Anniversary Year*

Celebrations began on Saturday 14th April with a ‘Come and Sing’ performance of Carmina Burana, featuring some members of the Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs and the London Percussion Ensemble – ‘a real treat for the audience – and for Basildon!’

In July  we contributed to a marvellous combined choir (over 150) performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah in Arundel Cathedral – ‘a powerful and moving experience.’

Now on our summer break we re-start rehearsals on Wednesday 5th September for our actual 60th Birthday concert on Saturday 3rd November at 7.45pm at St Martin’s Church in Basildon, SS14 4DX. This will feature Gounod’s Stabat Mater and Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle.

Our birthday party will be a celebratory dinner at Orsett Golf Club later in November!

    300 miles well worth it to hear BCS sing the Carmina Burana. The choir was magnificent, the London Percussion Ensemble too. A real treat for us – and for Basildon! Well done to all concerned.
