Music & Wine Night with The Back Row Choir at Averys Wine Cellars
Tel: +44 (0)117 921 4146
There have been Lay Clerks singing in Bristol Cathedral since it became a cathedral in 1542: the first six Lay Clerks' names are known. That tradition continues in the daily rhythm of Evensong, largely unchanged over the past 500 years.
More recently, the Lay Clerks have been joined by four Choral Scholars, often students at the University of Bristol, and together they form 'the back row' of the Cathedral Choir: boy and girl trebles from Bristol Cathedral Choir School make up the front row.
The cathedral choir tours a foreign country every two years, performs regularly on BBC Radio 3, and recently has performed live on BBC One, appeared in part in the Starz TV series "The White Princess", and cut a brand new CD A Year at Bristol.
With a 10 piece choir singing a mix of classic, modern and Christmas themed songs, matched with some delicious wines in the wonderful surrounding of the historic Averys Wine Cellars - this is going to be a full night to entertainment!
