Who are we?
Bristol A Cappella is a high-quality mixed chorus that sings contemporary songs from a range of genres in the barbershop style. We don't have beatboxing or soloists, but we aim to create a wall of sound by singing in four to eight-part harmony. We’re always looking to improve our performances and have a good time along the way. We love to entertain at gigs and competitions and always welcome new auditionees. Don't worry, it's not as scary as it sounds - you'll never have to sing by yourself and you get three months to do it!
How to join
Just come along to any rehearsal or New Singers Evening! You can also email our membership chair if you are interested, or join our mailing list above.
When and where?
When: 7:30 to 10:00 pm on Tuesdays
Where: Victoria Methodist Church undercroft, Whiteladies Road, BS8 1NU
How much does it cost?
Your first two rehearsals are free, then membership is £26.00 per month (half that if you're under 26).
New singers evenings
We host new singers evenings several times per year where the chorus and new singers will start learning a new song all together and contain an introduction to the chorus. These run at a more relaxed pace than normal rehearsals which can feel a little full on!
If you're keen to dive in, and don't mind a faster introduction, you can come along to one of our weekly rehearsals. They'll give you a good feel for the chorus, but can feel a bit full-on if you'd prefer to start with other new singers.
If you can't make our weekly rehearsals, but would still like to compete with Bristol A Cappella, we offer OutBAC membership, which just involves the coaching days leading up to a contest.
Getting into the venue
Entrance to the rehearsal space is to the right of the church down the slope; double back to the left halfway down and enter through blue wooden doors.
Are we COVID-secure?
We've done our risk assessments, and put in place plenty of mitigations to try to ensure that none of our singers catch or pass on COVID-19 at a chorus event.
