1 MAY & 15 MAY CONCERTS CANCELLED – Friday Footprint Concerts
Fri 6 March, 2020 at 6:30 pm until 7:30 pm
We have made the decision to cancel our concerts in April and May in accordance to government and Church of England guidelines. We thank you for your support of the Abbey’s music and look forward to seeing you in the future.
Join us for an evening filled with the beautiful sound of choral music to celebrate our Footprint project. We will be hosting five concerts from March to July and each choir will bring their own style and passion for singing – sure to delight audiences in equal measure.

1 May – Kingswood Prep School: The Summerhill Singers
15 May – The Melody Makers of Bath Abbey

The school choirs are part of the Abbey’s Schools’ Singing Programme; the Melody Makers are the Abbey’s youngest choir of 6-11 year olds, and the Aquae Sulis Chorale is a chamber choir made up of local professional and semi-professional singers.
The children’s concerts will include music by composers such as Britten, Dove, Muhly and many more. The Aquae Sulis Chorale will sing some well known and much loved favourites such as Parry’s I was Glad and Esenvalds’ magical work Only in Sleep, plus much more.
The Abbey Choir of Boys and Girls on 6 March will be directed by Huw WIlliams. All other concerts will be directed by Shean Bowers.
