People of Note




People of Note is one of Bristol’s longest standing community choirs. Now run by Rosie Sleightholme (who was appointed in 2022) the choir was set up in 2000 by Nickomo Clarke and Nick Petts, and run by Nickomo and Rasullah from 2009-2020.

The choir is building up membership after a few years of not running, and currently stands at a nice number of 60 members, with full SATB sections.

New members are welcome to come for a free taster at any point in the term – email to book. We’d love to welcome you to the choir!

Rosie is a Natural Voice choir leader who is passionate about bringing people together to sing. Every voice is welcome in People of Note. There are no auditions and all songs are taught by ear. We sing songs from all over the world, with some which are slightly more challenging, and others that are simple and easy to pick up. The main aim is for us all to have fun! Have a listen to us singing one of Rosie’s simple, meditative songs here.
