A Handful of Singers, Bath’s highly acclaimed chamber choir of just over 20 voices, has been performing in and around Bath since its inception in 2002.
The choir is directed by its conductor Christopher Finch, winner of the 2010 BBC Choir of the Year. Under his direction, A Handful of Singers has developed a wide repertoire of music, classical and contemporary, serious and not too serious, and has gained an enviable reputation for the quality and vibrancy of its performances. The choir has, at the moment, spaces for soprano and alto singers (see the joining page for details).
And the choir has released its debut album: do listen to the following sample of excerpts from the CD. The CD may be purchased through members of the choir, by phone – 01225 311850, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
