At the heart of OTM Bristol is a lively community choir that is open to absolutely everyone!

Performances

The Community Choir performs at sell out concerts alongside the OTM Bristol Chamber Choir at venues such as St George’s Bristol.

We also enjoy carol singing, pop-up choir gigs and performing at annual Bristol events such as the Harbour Festival, Festival of Song and the Millennium Square Christmas Markets.

Everyone is Welcome!

We learn all our songs by ear, so there is no need to be able to read music although music is available for people who would like it.

Members also have access to mp3/4 practice tracks of all the songs we are singing to help with learning parts. A warm welcome is always guaranteed and our aim is to make music enjoyable and accessible to all and as a result we are now recognised as being one of Bristol’s best and most active community choirs.
