Tom Selleck Rumours Quoshed

Contrary to popular rumour, we can confirm that Tom Selleck has not, as yet, successfully passed his BMVC audition to take his place amongst the hallowed ranks of baritones. You can always trust BMVC choristers to go the extra mile. The Choir’s Presenter and Box Office Manager, Allan Higgin, bravely put all shaving implements aside for a month in order to raise money as part of the cultural phenomenon known as ‘Movember.’ During November, men around the world grow moustaches to raise awareness of men’s heath issues and to raise funds to support efforts in addressing...

How to find that special treat for my partner? What to buy the in-laws? How to ingratiate myself with close friends, acquaintances and neighbours? Ordering online? Convenient, certainly – but the stress of waiting for the deliveries to arrive? Waiting in, not venturing out to the bookies, just on the off-chance the parcel van stops at your house?

Festive Cheer

Christmas is certainly coming and it’s been a very busy few days for the Choir! Last Wednesday afternoon, a group of us went to entertain residents at Avon Lodge, Southbourne and then on Friday night, another group performed at the Freemasons’ Hall in Boscombe. Today, we had a great time at Sunrise in Westbourne, where we were made to feel very welcome and were able to be present at the grand Christmas light switch-on! One of our first tenors, Harold Roper, enthralled the crowd with his rendition of ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkley...
