John Randall’s Arundel 2010 photos

John Randall sent through a selection of pics he snapped at Arundel this year. They’ve all been added to Flickr as well as put in a gallery here. I particularly love the one of the three basses!

HFO Gößweinstein concert review

Report of our Gößweinstein concert in the Nordbayerisches Kurier

Thanks to Geoff Williams for this translation of an article published on Friday 29th October, sent through by Mr Polster, the owner of the coach company. Beware that it is a big dowload (around 11mb!). Top marks, too, to Geoff, Felicity and Cherry for being the only ones of us to be watching Stephen at the moment the photographer took his snap…

Welcome to the new BCS website

Welcome to the new website for Basildon Choral Society. As you can probably tell, it is hosted on WordPress and should now be a lot more flexible for all to use. Here you’ll find out how to get in touch with choir, when the next concerts are, when the next trips are and what socials are going on. You may also stumble across tidbits of information about composers and choral music in general (not to mention the occasional recipe!).

Please look around and make yourself at home. 🙂
