Sing Out Bristol
joined Legato: 2014
Sing Out Bristol are the South West’s award-winning Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Choir. After our initial incarnation, the short-lived Bristol Gay Chorus, began (and ended) back in 2007, a few determined singers started to meet in each others' homes. By March 2008 this small group had grown to the point where we needed a dedicated rehearsal space, and we found our new home at Jubilee Hall in Bedminster. Soon after, we adopted our Constitution, held our first AGM, and the decision was made to call ourselves Sing Out Bristol.
In 2013, we celebrated our fifth birthday with the Our Favourite Things concert at the Victoria Rooms in Bristol, where over 70 members of the choir performed our favourite songs from the past five years performances to a packed audience, along with some new numbers (including Our Favourite Songs from the Sound Of Music - we just couldn't resist!)
Today, we have a hugely diverse membership, with people of all ages, orientations, abilities, genders and backgrounds coming together on a weekly basis to sing, socialise, and connect.
