Congratulations to members of the orchestra, choir and soloists who struggled and won against severely-reduced public transport to join in the Come & Sing in The Great Hall at Barts on Sunday afternoon!
It turned out to be the best way to spend a wet Sunday afternoon. Wonderful music and enthusiastic musicians joined together to produce an enjoyable performance.
Thanks to all involved.
Join us for our Easter Concert of Bach’s St John Passion, written for the Good Friday Vespers service of 1724.
Baton down at 7.30 pm on Monday 28th March in The Great Hall at Barts Hospital. Tickets are available at the door and all proceeds go to Barts Cancer Unit for the benefit of the patients.
Bring a friend and let Bach’s dramatisation give a different perspective to your Easter.

Thanks to all those who came to sing in the choir and play in the orchestra on Sunday – for the Mozart Requiem from scratch! There was a good buzz of enjoyment all round, and it was clear that so many of us are delighted to get back to singing and playing again.
John Lumley outlined the plans for next year which will be the 50th year since BAFCO (Bart’s Academic Festival Choir and Orchestra) started. Dates are still to be confirmed, but as soon as they are – the plans will be put on this website so as many of you as possible can join our current choir for a great choral year!
Don’t forget that singers can join us again on Sunday 28th November at 2 pm, to sing Handel’s Messiah – again from scratch – look out your music and put the date in your diary!
