Gasworks Choir


St Werburghs and Bishopston in Bristol.


Bristol’s legendary Gasworks Choir started in 1997 and has been going strong ever since. Currently led by Ali Orbaum and Susannah Gooch, we aim high but welcome all abilities. We sing a wide range of gorgeous material – pop, folk, soul, gospel, songs from around the world and the occasional classical piece. All songs are taught by ear and there’s no audition to join.

We meet fortnightly and learn our songs in smaller groups of approx. 40 singers. We also come together regularly as a 160 strong choir to enjoy singing as a whole choir and for performances. Our December concert is usually held at St George’s Bristol, a beautiful venue with one of the best acoustics in the country.

We are a friendly, lively and supportive choir which welcomes new members.
