Come and join us for our (very short and sweet) Christmas term
Come and sing with us at BCS, Bookham Can Sing!! The benefits of communal singing are known to all and we would love to share our hobby with you. We are a long established community based choir; we do not hold auditions and our music is varied and accessible to all who are prepared to "give it a go". You do not have to be able to read music to join us-just a good ear and some concentration. You may be amazed by what you can achieve!
Pop a date in your diary to come and de-stress with us on a Tuesday evening in the run up to Christmas.
The Pearl Fishers: 23rd November 2019 7pm
What a fantastic evening this was, when everything came together to deliver a truly memorable concert. Supported by an excellent orchestra we were treated to four stunning soloists, Callie Gaston, soprano, as Leila; Samuel Oram, baritone, as Zurga; William Branston, tenor, as Nadir and Matthew Thistleton, bass, as Nourabad. On this occasion the choir essentially adopted the role of crowd and extras which enabled us to fully appreciate the interaction of the components making up the performance.
Don't forget to save the date and join the event on our Facebook page here.

Christmas Carol Concert:
8pm St Nicolas Church Bookham
The Society was formed in 1927 with the objective of promoting choral music in the locality and of taking part in the annual Leith Hill Musical Festival held in Dorking which at that time had already been running for more than 20 years.
Our Christmas began on 26 November as we commenced our very swift preparations for our ever-popular Christmas Carol Concert.
The evening promises to be a lovely mix of carols old and new, with plenty of opportunity for community singing. (There's something fantastic about singing amidst so many voices).
Our Christmas carol Concert is on Wednesday 18 December at 8pm, St Nicolas Church, Bookham
See Members' area for rehearsal schedule, arrangements on concert day and Term dates.
