We were able to welcome representatives from Vintage Brass to our rehearsal yesterday evening and finalised details of our concert with them next year. It will take place at the Boscombe Salvation Army Hall on 20th April 2013. This band really is a class act and we are absolutely delighted to be performing with them; another reason to look forward to Spring!

Wake Up with BMVC!

We were delighted to be invited onto the Julian Clegg Breakfast show on BBC Radio Solent this morning to talk about the choir’s 90th anniversary. After a slight mix up at the start (!) we were given a fantastic opportunity to tell the listeners about the choir and our plans for the forthcoming year, as well as play ‘I Believe’ from ‘One Voice.’ For those who may have missed the show, it will be available until Monday 8th October via the BBC’s listen again service. The Choir featured between 1:54.45 – 1:59.40.

Special Saturday for BMVC

Special Saturday for BMVC

The choir is highly honored to be performing at the wedding of Sarah Medhurst & Mohamed Rashid Said Al Mawali at St Mary’s Church, Bransgore this coming Saturday.

Friends and members of the choir will know that Sarah’s father, John Medhurst, was a popular, distinguished member of our choir for over 16 years. John joined the choir in March 1994 and died on the 9th June 2010. He had an excellent Baritone voice and performed solos for the choir, in particular, ‘Bring Him Home’. He served on the Committee from 2005 as a Members Representative and was also Registrar for a number of years. His previous singing experience was with the Exeter Amateur Operatic Society and he also sang in the Church choir of Saturday’s venue, St Mary’s.

John is greatly missed by all who knew him and he will be in our thoughts as we contribute to the joyous occasion of his daughter’s marriage ceremony.
