Big Sing Day with Bob Chilcott

Did you enjoy yourself in Richmond two years ago with John Rutter and David Murray? The Swaledale Festival are again holding a similar event with Bob Chilcott – and David Murray – on Saturday 30th May 2015. The link below gives details of the event. Tickets will be available online from the 23rd March or later by post.

For more general details about the Festival you can use the more general link below.

I am sure that there will be a few familiar faces there.


Singing out and about

Thursday 12th February 2015 saw Bishopwearmouth Choral Society engaging in a new joint venture with Sunderland Business Improvement District as part of improving the Evening Economy in the Bridges Shopping Centre and trying to recruit new members to the Society. For everyone who was able to take part it was both a new experience and a unique venue.

A group from the Society gave a series of mini-performances, led by David Murray from the keyboard, to treat passers-by to a selection of our type of music, to pass out information about the Society and to invite any budding recruits to an Open Evening to be held on Wednesday 25th February from 6.30 to 7.30 p.m. in The Café, Sunderland Minster. If you know anyone who would like to find out how their voice can fit into the choir then you can find out more or book a place for this by e-mailing Eileen on or by phoning Grahame at 07889 177 092.











Our thanks to Laura Hartland-Adams, the Events & Operations Manager for Sunderland BID, and to staff at The Bridges for making this possible and to those in the Society who enabled it to happen.
