Fundraising Success

Many thanks to all of you who came to support us at Castlepoint Shopping Centre on Saturday as we performed to fundraise for the DEC Philippines Typhoon Appeal. We’re delighted to announce that our 30 minute performance managed to raise £200 for the cause and a cheque will be on its way to the Appeal on Monday!

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...

We’re counting down the days to our next concert at Sacred Heart in the centre of Bournemouth on Saturday 15th December at 7.30pm Musical Director, Mark Burstow, comments on the rich variety of the programme: ‘Out of the eight items in the first half for example – five are contemporary, original compositions for men’s choirs.

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...
