Jim McAllister

This afternoon the Choir paid tribute at the funeral of our dear friend, Jim McAllister, who died last week just a few weeks away from his 90th birthday.

He played a key role in authoring our current constitution, served as Treasurer and became a Life Vice President of the Choir. We are deeply indebted to Jim for all that he contributed to the choir, enabling us to become what we are today. He was a true gentleman, respected and held in deep affection by all. We will always remember his warmth, humour,...

‘Tis the Season!

The leaves are changing colour, the days getting shorter and restaurants are imploring us to make our festive reservations which can only mean one thing … BMVC’s busiest period of the year is upon us! Our 13-14 season began in September, with a concert at Bournemouth’s School for Girls in aid of the Bournemouth Society for the Visually Impaired and Diverse Abilities Plus, raising almost £900. We were then invited to perform at the benediction for the recently re-opened Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart in the town centre. The church stonework had been thoroughly cleaned...
