Welcome to Bude Choral Society

 
We perform a wide variety of high-quality choral works in the local area and we aim to make a valuable contribution to the life of our local community. We hope that you will be able to participate in our music-making, either as a singer, audience member, Friend or sponsor. New members, young and older, in all voice parts, are very welcome to join us.

We sing on Wednesday evenings at Stratton Primary School (EX23 9AP) from 7:30pm - 9:30pm.

This term we have been delighted to welcome several new members to Bude Choral Society.


“ALL AT SEA” FOR CHARITY

On Saturday 18 April 2015, Bude Choral Society will be joined by Bude-based shanty group the Bencoolen Wreckers in a light-hearted evening of musical entertainment entitled “All at Sea” to raise funds for two local charities – the Friends of Bude Sea Pool and the Cornwall Air Ambulance.

 

The Parkhouse Centre in Bude will echo to the sounds of music themed around the sea, including settings of poems by Longfellow and John Masefield, shanties and sea songs, and the ever-popular “Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo” with words by Michael Flanders. Keyboard, string bass and percussion will add an exciting extra dimension to the singing, and local musicians John Hobbs, David Robinson and Julian Rippon will be contributing their expertise and humour to the entertainment.


Bude Choral Society’s last joint venture with the Bencoolen Wreckers in 2013 raised £1,000 through ticket sales and a retiring collection for FoBSP and the League of Friends of Stratton Hospital. The Chairman, Philip Uglow, is hoping that this amazing sum can be beaten, thanks to the generosity of local people and their friends.

This is bound to be a sell out event, so make sure you get your tickets soon.  They are priced at £8 (schoolchildren free) and are available in advance from Ark Angel Bookshop (Bude), the Bude Tourist Information Centre or from choir members, or on the door on the night if there are any left.
