Bath Songways
Description

Join our choir on Wednesday evenings in the beautiful and spacious St Swithin’s Church, Bath, led by Jane Harris. Expect a warm welcome and rewarding singing sessions filled with a wide variety of songs, rich harmonies, infectious fun and moments of stillness. There are no auditions and there is no need to read music – Jane teaches all the songs and harmonies by ear.

We combine with the Bradford on Avon Songways choir for performances in beautiful venues including Bath Abbey.

We relish the energy, vibrancy and variety of the songs we sing in Songways and are excited by the way singing in harmony can take us into different sound worlds. Jane plays the violin and we love to collaborate with other instrumental musicians for some of our songs – including guitar and bouzouki. Singing with Songways is also a chance to develop your voice, increasing range and resonance, and exploring new singing styles.
