About Clarity Choir:
Clarity Choir sing uplifting songs from around the world in a range of styles and come together to perform a few times a year. Clarity is an open-access, a cappella community choir that is as much about having fun as it is about singing!
All songs are taught by ear and everything we sing is unaccompanied allowing us to really enjoy the wonderful sound of the human voice in harmony. We meet in Bath and Trowbridge during term time. The choir is led by Clara Atkins.
About Bath Folk Singers:
With songs of epic journeys, rural pastimes and loves lost and found, the Bath Folk Singers are a community choir performing English folk songs in rich harmony. They have performed extensively across Bath and the surrounding area where they always impress with their varied, entertaining programmes and their heart felt performances. The choir is conducted by Matt Norman.
