Sing Out Bristol
joined Legato: 2014
Sing Out Bristol was started by Canadian immigrant Raymond Wells in 2007. We met weekly in a community centre kitchen with a noisy boiler and interest quickly grew. We badly needed a qualified musical director and under pressure, Raymond threw in the towel. A few members decided to continue and met in their homes. We elected a committee, found another venue and Sing Out Bristol's LGBT community choir was born and has gone from strength to strength since. Talented members Max Wellingham, who conducts, and Ronan De Burca, our accompanist, share the job of musical direction. We don't audition, we sing for fun and cover everything from jazz to choral. We received developmental funding from The Quartet Foundation in November 2007.
