The choir's size gives it flexibility to perform music in diverse styles, from intimate Renaissance polyphony and partsongs to large scale works with orchestra.
The choir was formed in 1991 by Malcolm Archer. The choir now enjoys a busy schedule of concerts and events under the direction of David Ogden, who was appointed Director of Music in 2000.
Performance highlights include a performance of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius with City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in 2007, an appearance on BBC television's Songs of Praise and performing David Ogden's Cabot Circus Cantata, an arts project created as part of the multi-million pound Cabot Circus development in central Bristol.
As a registered charity, City of Bristol Choir provides bursaries for four or five young people annually and, where necessary, subsidises orchestral concerts to help keep ticket prices low.
