The choir is open to everyone. There are no auditions - all you need is a love of singing and a sense of humour! We are particularly in need of more men. Rehearsals are held at Bidford Methodist Church  Tuesdays  7.30pm - 9.30pm

We put on two concerts a year. There may also be other events.

 

Subscriptions fees are kept low to ensure that we are open to all. Children of choir members are able to join the Youth Choir at no additional cost but parents/ carers are asked to make a contribution towards hall hire, music etc if possible

 

Associate membersip "Friends of BACC" is available at a cost of £5 for people who would like to support the choir and be on the mailing list.

Who do we raise money for?

We always raise money for local charities. Every penny made goes to a good cause in the local area. For our Winter Concert 2014, we were able to support the local branch of the Royal British Legion. We also supported many local events by singing, including Buy in Bidford, The Christmas Tree Festival, Bidford Christmas Lights, GP Surgery Christmas fayre. 

"You can't stop the beat" (Summer 2014) raised money for Bidford Churches.

 "Wherever you are" (Autumn 2013) raised £1000 for the new GP Surgery and Health Centre.

A truly inclusive Community Choir founded a by Amanda Oliverwho had a vision to make singing fun. We do get better and better!

Bidford Area Community Choir is a local community choir with children and adults of all ages. Currently we have over 60 choir members. We are a friendly bunch and put on two concerts a year. These are usually in the Summer and late Autumn and are for the benefit of local charities.



We practice weekly in the run up to the concert at the Methodist Church, Bidford.



All the music is carefully chosen by Mary Roberts (Musical Director) and is provided as part of the £35 concert subscription fee.

This means all the money made at our concerts can go to a good cause.



Children of choir members are welcome to join the very special Youth /Children’s Choir and the new teen harmony group. 

Children practice on Sunday afternoons in the run up to the concert and then join the full choir for the final rehearsal stages.
