Welcome to Basildon Choral!

Under Lockdown – but we keep singing!

This is our latest video, Bruckner’s motet Locus iste, again produced during lockdown. This time the self recorded videos were edited and synchronised to the audio.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

We produced this video on VE Day 75. The audio was put together from locked down members’ individual recordings prior to making this video recording on Zoom. We knew that any attempt to achieve co-ordination was doomed to failure!! But it was good fun nonetheless! Hear also our disseminated version of Mozart’s Ave Verum

Watch out for further recordings from irrepressible singers at home!

Rehearsals start planned soon

We were due to sing Handel’s Messiah on Saturday 2nd May at St Martin’s Church in Basildon Town Centre, SS14 1DX as a ‘Come and Sing’  but this was cancelled because of the Covid-19 crisis.  Rehearsals on Wednesdays at 7.45pm at Langdon Hills Methodist Church, SS16 6EX are currently suspended but we hope to be back singing together by the beginning of November.

Wow!!  This was the reaction from one of our audience to Basildon Choral’s performance at the Café Concerts last February:

‘Oh wow!! I just can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the Cafe Concerts yesterday!!! They were absolutely excellent from start to finish and I had a smile on my face and a tingle in my spine constantly!!. The choir sounded absolutely superb throughout and Jean’s narration knitted the whole thing together just perfectly. Huge thanks to Stephen Hope and well done all of you for a thoroughly wonderful evening!’

We are a growing choir of long standing with an excellent reputation. We sing five concerts a year – a family carol concert, café style 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.
